Recipe

This creamy spinach polenta is such a dreamy side dish. Packed with Parmesan cheese and earthy spinach, it screams comfort food and makes the perfect side dish for slow roasted meats, veggies, and beans. Personally I love serving it with this Slow Cooker Beef Ragu, Italian Red Pepper Chicken, and Pork Paprikash. Some folks have reached out nervous about making polenta since it has turned out gritty in the past. The key I have found is adding the polenta very slowly and stirring it constantly at the beginning.
