About this recipe

Polenta is cornmeal. Before it became trendy, people used to eat it because it was cheap. Now we never have it. Try it out; it’s good (and cheap).


Bring to a boil:

Turn burner to lowest setting and whisk in:

Leave on burner for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally with a big honking wooden spoon to make sure nothing sticks to the bottom. Then shut off burner and let set for 10 minutes.

Spread onto dinner plates, about ½ inch thick. Top with Ragù Sauce made with mushrooms and Parmesan cheese, or sausages fried in olive oil.
