  • 1 lb. fresh mushrooms, sliced

  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper

Place bell peppers and remaining 1/4 cup water in food processor or blender; cover and process until smooth. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 11 X 7-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Cut cold polenta into 12 (3 1/2 -inch) squares; arrange 6 squares in bottom of prepared dish. Spread with half of bell pepper mixture, half of vegetable mixture and 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Place remaining 6 squares polenta over Parmesan. Top with remaining bell pepper and vegetable mixtures and Parmesan.

Bake 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and polenta is golden brown. Cut into 6 wedges before serving.
