How to Make:

  1. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Place milk and stock in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer. Slowly add polenta, stirring constantly. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until thick. Add parmesan. Stir until melted. Spoon polenta onto 1 prepared tray. Spread to form a 21cm x 34cm oval. Cool for 15 minutes. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, place zucchini and squash in a bowl. Add lemon juice and oil. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Stand at room temperature until required.
  3. Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Place asparagus and tomatoes on remaining tray. Spray with oil. Season. Place vegetables and polenta in oven. Bake for 15 minutes or until tomatoes start to split. Bake polenta for a further 5 minutes or until polenta starts to brown around the edges.
  4. Meanwhile, combine ricotta, parsley, tarragon and garlic in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Drain zucchini mixture, reserving lemon mixture. Spread ricotta mixture over polenta base. Top with tomato, asparagus, salami and zucchini mixture. Drizzle with reserved lemon mixture and sprinkle with extra parsley. Serve immediately with salad.
