Tasty NEW WAY to cook Polenta
Polenta is a warm staple in our house during winter. We serve it cold with a salad during summer. This is a tasty new way for warm polenta. If you've never tried Polenta do give this recipe a try.
I dont know but for me it was off. It was very esy to make, but the taste was just not quite right. Maybe I used a different named product I do not know. I will try again just in case-
That one brings back memories of my mom's polenta...excellent recipe
We needed something different. I made the polenta and poured hot beef stew over it. This was very good and will be making again. I didn't have fontana cheese so I used mozzarella cheese and it was very good. Husband liked it too.
Really glad that I stumbled on this one, what a great find! After reading the other reviews, I decided to try it with the chicken stock instead of water. I also added some diced sundried tomatoes, and it was a great hit. My sister ,who is a spectacular cook, loved it! That is saying something!
