Easy Polenta Dinner

I've never been a huge fan of polenta, for no real reason other than it doesn't really excite me. I think of it the same way I do tofu; a good base but kinda blah on it's own.
I've been bored with cooking as of late so I thought I'd give polenta a try again.

I purchased pre made polenta (it comes in a clear tube). I sliced it in 1/2 inch thick slices and cooked it in a frying pan with a bit of olive oil. I then added sliced peppers and salt and pepper for seasoning.  To make the puree I cooked 6 large carrots and then purred them in a food processor adding 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, a glove of garlic and salt and pepper to taste.
The meal was fantastic!
It was easy and healthy.
