1. Heat grill to high. Pour the stock into a pan, then bring to the boil. Sprinkle in the polenta, then cook for 2-3 mins, stirring constantly, until thickened. Stir in the olives and 1 tbsp of the oil, then season well. Spread out in a greased 17cm square cake tin, then set aside.
2. Heat remaining oil in a frying pan, then fry the onion for 2-3 mins until softened. Add the garlic and red pepper, then fry for a further 3-4 mins. Stir in the beans, plum tomatoes and sun-dried tomato paste. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, then simmer for 5 mins until softened. Stir in some of the torn basil, then season.
3. Grill the polenta for 3-4 mins until lightly golden, then turn out of the tin and cut into 4 triangles. Arrange 2 triangles on each plate, then top with the ragout. Serve sprinkled with cheese and the whole basil leaves.
