serves 6 to 8
Casseroles aren’t the usual fare in the summer, since they require lots of time around a hot oven, but this dish of creamy polenta on top of a stew of summer’s peak produce cries out for the making.
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
2. Place the onion in a large saucepan and sauté over medium heat for 10 minutes. Add water 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time to keep onion from sticking to the pan.
3. Add the red pepper, eggplant, and garlic. Cook, covered, for 15 minutes, adding more water as needed.
4. Stir in the tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and cook for another 10 minutes.
5. Add the basil and spoon the mixture into baking dish. Spoon the polenta over the eggplant mixture and bake for 30 minutes.
