    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly grease and line a 12x8 inch baking tray with parchment paper.
    2. Bring stock and milk to a boil over medium heat. Gradually whisk in polenta. Reduce heat and simmer for 3 mins, whisking constantly, until thick. Remove from heat, add 1/4 cup Parmesan and butter. Season. Transfer to prepared tray and smooth surface. Chill then cut into thirds.
    3. Arrange vegetables in a single layer on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil and season. Bake for 40-45 mins, until tender.
    4. Increase oven to 400°F. Place one strip of polenta on another baking tray lined with parchment paper. Spread ricotta and pesto over polenta then arrange 1/2 of the vegetables on top. Repeat layers, finishing with polenta. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan and bake for 15-20 mins, until cheese melts. Cut into 4 portions.
    5. Serve hot with baby spinach, drizzled with balsamic vinegar.
