Slow Cooked Polenta with Cherry Tomatoes

We love recipes that require little effort, but yield maximum results, and our slow cooked polenta with cherry tomatoes is one of those recipes. Slow cooking at a low temperature yields creamy soft polenta and makes the cherry tomatoes tender, sweet, and jammy. Grate a generous amount of Parmesan cheese over the tomatoes for a savory, umami-rich finish.
