Meanwhile for sauce, scoop tomato seeds out of cavities from tomato halves. Gently squeeze tomato to remove the more water. Mince fresh tomato, transfer in a bowl with the rest of salsa ingredients, mix and set aside. In a pan, heat olive with minced garlic and chili pepper over high heat for 1 minute.

Preheat the oven to 400 F. Grease a large rectangle baking dish or add parchment paper. Remove polenta from refrigerator, cut into eight 4-inch squares and place half of the squares in the bottom of the rectangle baking dish.

Spoon half of the sauce evenly over the polenta squares and top with half of the mozzarella and half of the Parmesan-Reggiano. Arrange the remaining 4 polenta squares on top. Cover with the remaining sauce, mozzarella and Parmesan-Reggiano cheeses. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until the cheese melts and the sauce is bubbling.
