 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4       tb           Olive oil
    2                    Garlic cloves
    6                    Ripe tomatoes, seeded,
                         -- finely chopped & drained
                         Salt & pepper
    1 1/2   tb           Parsley
                         Polenta, prepared as above
                         Olive oil
 
   Warm the olive oil in a medium sized skillet over low heat & saute the
   garlic gently, just until it begins to take on colour.  Add the
   tomatoes, salt & pepper & cook uncovered for 10 minutes, or until the
   tomatoes lose their juices.  Stir in the parsley.
   Preheat the broiler.  Cut the cooked polenta into 2 squares & brush
   them with a light wash of oil.  Broil until they are firm & lightly
   crisp with a bit of a crust on the first side.  Turn the squares over
   & spread with the tomato mixture.  Broil for 5 to 7 minutes & serve
   immediately.
