Total Time: 90-120 minutes
Make Again: Yes
Recipe Source: The Italian Country Table
This recipe is very simple, but takes a while to make. You make the polenta in a double broiler, so it cooks slowly and doesn't need as much attention. You just have to stir it every 20 minutes (although more often the first 20 minutes).
It is good soft, but I love to put it into a pan and let it solidify first (you can use a sheet pan or a loaf pan - both work). Then I cut it into pieces, brush with a little oil and either grill or broil. It gets crunchy on the outside and soft and creamy on the inside.
I love to have this with roasted peppers or tomatoes and it makes a nice appetizer for an italian meal.
