For the polenta: bring the milk together with the broth and 2 tablespoons of oil to a boil over low heat (slowly, so you can finish preparing the rest). Season to taste.
For the puttanesca sauce: wash the vegetables. Grate the plum tomato. Peel and chop the garlic. Cut the olives into slices. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half. Chop the cashew nuts, basil and mozzarella separate from each other.
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a frying pan and sauté the garlic together with the cayenne pepper for a few seconds. Add the grated tomato and bring it to a boil. Let it simmer for 5 minutes, so that a part of the water evaporates and the flavours will concentrate. Add the cherry tomatoes, olives, capers, basil and half of the cashew nuts. Season to taste and let it simmer for another 3 minutes. Set aside.
Once the milk in the pot boils, start stirring with a spatula while gradually adding the polenta. Continue stirring and once it comes to a boil, reduce the heat to a minimum and let it cook for approx. 3-5 minutes. Stir occasionally, to prevent it from sticking. Turn off the heat.
