Pasta is arguably the starch that will lure you into Osteria Morini. Certainly, the cappeletti, garganelli, and tagliatelle are all worth breaking your Atkins diet. (Alhough why you're still on Atkins also needs to be resolved.) But for true gut-busting comfort, the polenta is the way to go. A terra-cotta crock arrives enshrouded in a steamy haze from the bubbling, lusciously creamy cornmeal that's topped with loads of crumbled pork sausage, a glossing of tomato sauce, and a layer of melted mozzarella cheese. Don a pair of elastic-waisted jeggings, grab a spoon, and dig in. 218 Lafayette Street, 212-965-8777, (10012)
