Roasted Asparagus and Veggies:
preheat oven to 400°.

Bring water to a boil, add salt and gradually whisk in cornmeal. Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally until polenta is cooked. About 10 min. Add butter at the end.

Cook tilapia in a pan with little olive oil, after 3minutes, turn tilapia over,

(cooking time will vary according to how thick your tilapia is).
