Super easy

Surprisingly good cooked in the microwave, and I can pay attention to the rest of dinner. It had a little spicy kick. It'll start to thicken up pretty quickly after it comes out of the microwave.

Great solution for cooking polenta quickly and works every time! I often use half milk and half water to give the polenta a creamier texture. Love using the microwave when the stove is full of other pots and pans.
