Recipe

When I want something comforting, there are a few things that come to mind immediately. Macaroni and cheese, spaghetti and meatballs, and polenta. Polenta was something I didn't discover until a few years back and now its a constant in my kitchen. I love the hearty, creamy, corn filled flavor and it pairs so well with veggies.

Notes

This recipe calls for quick cooking polenta. If you use regular polenta, it will need to be cooked with more liquid according to package directions.
