  2. When you pour a thick layer of polenta over ratatouille and bake it, you end up with a delicious pot pie. Covering the dish during baking helps keep the polenta soft rather than crusting over. Serve with a salad of mixed greens.
  3. In large ovenproof Dutch oven, heat 1 Tbsp. oil over medium heat. Add in onion and cook, stirring often, till softened, about 6 min. Add in remaining 1 1/2 Tbsp. oil, eggplant and 1/2 tsp. salt and cook, stirring often, 3 min.
  4. Add in bell pepper and garlic and cook, stirring often, till eggplant begins to soften, 6 to 7 min. Stir in tomatoes and zucchini. Cover partially, reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring often to prevent sticking, 10 min.
  5. Add in parsley, tomato paste, vinegar, basil, remaining 1/2 tsp. salt and freshly grnd pepper to taste. Simmer, uncovered, 3 min. Remove from heat, smooth top with a spoon and cold 1 hour.
  6. Meanwhile, make soft polenta. As soon as it is quite thick but still pourable, immediately scrape hot polenta over ratatouille, spreading proportionately with spoon.
  7. Let cold 30 min.
  8. Preheat oven to 375F. Cover Dutch oven with lid or possibly foil and bake till heated through, 35 to 40 min. Remove from oven and let stand, covered, 10 min before serving.
