Herbed Polenta with Parmigiano-Reggiano

Herbed Polenta with Parmigiano-Reggiano

Prep: 5 minutes; Cook: 17 minutes

Serve soft polenta just as you would mashed potatoes. Try it with meats, such as Osso Buco with Gremolata, and hearty stews. Or spoon it into a bowl and top it with a favorite sauce, such as Bolognese. Use medium- or fine-textured yellow cornmeal rather than stone-ground, and make sure it's not a mix (which contains flour, leavening, and salt) or self-rising cornmeal (which has leavening and salt).
