  2. Place Oval Savarin Tray on a Perforated Baking Sheet and place a Bonmat on a Perforated Baking Sheet and set aside
  3. In Mixing Bowl, toss the vegetables with the Olive Oil, Garlic, Salt and Pepper, mixing well to coat the vegetables
  4. Before cooking the vegetables, turn your attention to the Polenta and spoon ¾ cup of of it into each well of the Tray
  5. Spread vegetables out on the Bonmat in one layer and bake them with the Polenta for 25-30 minutes. The vegetables should be roasted and browned on the edges, while the Polenta will just be beginning to brown on the edges. (Cook polenta for longer if you want the exterior to be firmer or crunchy)
  6. Distribute the vegetables between 6 plates, pop out the Polenta cakes and place on top of vegetables
  7. Top each dish with a dollop of Mascarpone Cheese and a spooning of Basil Pesto, then garnish with fresh Thyme and serve immediately
