1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 cup instant polenta
1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated Parmesan
4 tablespoons unsalted butter


Bring 4 cups of water and the salt to a boil in a saucepan. Stirring constantly, add in the polenta. Cook, still stirring constantly, until the polenta thickens, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the Parmesan and butter. Cover and set aside until the butter melts, about 2 minutes. Stir again before serving.
