emoticon Hi Everyone. Polenta is also found in packages in supermarkets ready to go. Just slice and use. I use polenta in lasagna. Just use the lasagna recipe and substitute in sliced polenta for the pasta noodles - delicious!

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polenta

Polenta is made with ground yellow or white cornmeal (ground maize) originally made with Chestnut meal in ancient times. It can be ground coarsely or finely depending on the region and the texture desired.

I love polenta. I just like to saute it in olive oil and add a little salt and pepper. Sometimes I plop a dollop of salsa on top. Of course, I grew up eating cornmeal 'mush' (like oatmeal but with cornmeal) for breakfast so it's no surprise I like polenta.

I looked and all the ones required the dry polenta vs the 'chub' you buy of ready made polenta.

I used ready made polenta.

oooh yes.. polenta pizza! For me, it does the trick!

Slice it 1/2". Put a spoon full of spagetti sauce on it, some mozzerrella cheese and italian seasonings.

Then back for like 12 - 15 minutes I think at 350. I believe the receipe is in SP

It's not really a recipe, but I just sauteed polenta slices in basil olive oil until they were crisp on the outside. It was really really good. It's the first time I've ever had it.

Any other suggestions?
