The Caprese flavors just do it for me. I mean, how can you go wrong with tomato, basil and mozzarella? Or maybe it’s because I’m lucky enough to have actually visited the island of Capri in Italy. Possibly the most beautiful place in the world. I’m pretty much OK with anything they do there: Caprese combinations, limoncello, gelato, boat rides, hiking up and down to the water, evening strolls through town… Sigh. At least I can let food take me back.
These polenta stacks make use of the Caprese flavors and pair them with some sliced polenta rounds. Everything fits together so nicely and neatly. That makes me happy. Type A here.
I opted for pre-cooked, pre-made polenta for this. It’s an easy shortcut and I’ve usually got some on hand. However, you can absolutely make your own if you prefer.
Regardless, you just pan-fry the polenta slices, heat the tomato slices with some balsamic vinegar and assemble your stacks. Go as high as you like!
