- 1 18oz. tube pre-cooked polenta

Slice tube of polenta into 12 even rounds.
Lightly oil a saute pan over medium-high heat. When then pan is warm, set the polenta rounds in the pan and saute them for a few minutes on each side until polenta is slightly browned and crisp. Place polenta rounds on a plate.
Put a spoonful of ricotta in the middle of each round.
