To make the tomatoes, preheat the oven to 450ºF. Arrange the cherry tomatoes in an even layer on a large baking sheet. Toss with the olive oil and a couple of generous pinches of salt and pepper. Roast for 10 minutes, or until burnished and starting to pop. Remove from the oven and toss with the garlic and basil.
Meanwhile, make the polenta. In a medium saucepan, bring 3 cups water plus the salt to a boil. Add the polenta and cook according to the package instructions. Add the Parmesan and butter and transfer to a serving platter or bowl. Top with the roasted tomatoes and torn burrata cheese.
