I made this recipe as is (except I diced the tomatoes and subbed chicken broth for water), and I really didn't like it. However, I think it has a lot of potential. Changes I would make: use maybe a half cup of heavy cream in place of 1/2 cup of milk, use chicken broth in place of water, dice the tomatoes, use more basil. Do not sprinkle the basil over the tomatoes, put it under. If you put it on top, the basil will get dry and crispy. Lastly, and most importantly, DO NOT stir the polenta/cornmeal right into the boiling liquid!!!! I did this part without thinking and the dish was extremely lumpy. You must whisk the polenta into the cold liquid, then bring to a boil. Whisk often as you heat it.
