Yes, the polenta is a nice change from pasta, the meat sauce was good and my family enjoyed it. I'm giving it 3 stars b/c it's a great, quick weeknight meal (so don't let the rating persaude you not to try it) and I'll make it again, but I jus don't think I'd serve it for a special occasion and it didn't knock my socks off. Note: I used 5 minute polenta, which made prep time even quicker.

I thought this recipe was great. Quick, easy and delicious. I made a few changes - I used farro polenta and cooked it in chicken broth and added a little butter once it was done cooking along with the cheese. Also substituted ground bison for ground beef and added more red pepper flakes for a kick. I'll definitely make this again!

Solid and doesnt take very long to make. I also replace the water with low sodium chicken broth for the polenta and bison instead of ground beef.
