This is a hard recipe to rate, because my partner and I have completely opposite opinions (so we split the difference). I really want to like polenta, and have tried several recipes, but I think when it comes down to it, I don't like the texture (and that's hard to get around). My partner, however, loved this recipe. If we make it again, we'll have to use pasta.
