Who has time these days to spend hours in the kitchen to make just one meal? Unless you’re a one percenter who has butlers and chefs on call, chances are you’re strapped for time. Here are a few quick ideas that you can throw together without anyone thinking they only took 30 minutes to fix.
1 lb. roll pre-made polenta, cut into ½ inch slices
1 lb. ground beef or turkey
1 tablespoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon onion salt
16 oz. spaghetti sauce
8 ounces grated cheese (mozzarella, pepper jack, colby, etc)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a saucepan, brown the ground beef with pepper and salt.
In a 9 x 9 pan, fill the bottom with ½ the polenta rounds. Top with half the ground meat and half the spaghetti sauce and half the cheese. Repeat for a second layer.
Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes until the cheese is melted. Serves four (or two hungry people).
