Polenta chips with spicy dipping sauce

Polenta chips with spicy dipping sauce

Made with Mutti Baby Roma tomatoes

Baby Roma are small, delicious, elongated tomatoes that stand out for their sweet flavour and fleshy texture. They are very carefully harvested and processed extremely quickly so that their freshly picked taste can be preserved. As their skin is very thin, they are ideal for use in quick sauces or for enjoying with shellfish and seafood.
