Review: "Polenta, cooked cornmeal, is a cinch in the microwave. Here it
is topped with a vegetable melange from southern France."

POLENTA: In a rectangular 3-quart microwave-safe casserole, mix the milk
and water. Whisk in the cornmeal and salt.

Cover with vented plastic. Microwave on high power for a total of 12
minutes, or until most of the liquid is absorbed, stop and stir after 6

Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.

RATATOUILLE: Coat a large no-stick frying pan with no-stick spray. Add the
oil and place over medium-high heat. Add the onions, garlic and green
peppers. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes, or until the onions and
peppers begin to soften.

Add the eggplant, tomatoes, basil, oregano and black pepper. Cook, stirring
occasionally, for 10 minutes, or until the eggplant is tender.

TO SERVE: Spoon the vegetables over the cornmeal. Sprinkle with the
Monterey Jack. Microwave for 1 minute, or until the cheese melts.
