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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; gradually add polenta, stirring constantly with a whisk. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes or until thick. Remove from heat; stir in cheeses. Serve immediately.

I love instant.  I hate standing over my stove for 30 to 40 minutes making polenta.  I think instant is just as good.  I order it on line and get it fast so we can have it often.  : )
