Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cut cherry tomatoes in half and mince garlic. Add to skillet and saute 4-5 minutes. Deglaze with white wine, let come to a boil and reduce heat to low. Stir in drained beans, vinegar, and rosemary. Season with salt and pepper to taste and continue to simmer while you cook the polenta.
