Tired of rice and pasta? Give this quick, creamy polenta a try for a dish similar to cheese grits. If you are not serving immediately, keep it covered over low heat, and stir occasionally, adding additional water, if necessary, to prevent it from becoming too thick. Serve with pork tenderloin and a simple green salad.
