Preheat clean grill to medium. Brush grill with part of the 2 tablespoons olive oil. Slice 24 rounds out of 2 polenta logs, about 1/4" each round. Brush each round with rest of olive oil. Grill polenta 6-7 minutes turning once; remove and set aside. In medium skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil on medium heat. Add garlic, roast 4-6 minutes; add spinach, cook 5-7 minutes. Add spices and Parmesan cheese. Stir, remove from heat. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Assemble "sandwiches" on a baking sheet by placing spinach mixture in between 2 Polenta rounds. Bake 8-10 minutes. Serve hot, 3 "sandwiches" per person.
There are varieties of Polenta logs, with different flavors. If you don't want to use the outdoor grill, use a flat grill on top of stove or a large skillet. This side dish goes well with roast meats or chicken.
