Oh my gosh do I love Polenta! It is soooo good! It's also a hearty Italian staple and my mom cooks it a lot. I love the grainy goodness with just about any Italian dish. This is made with chicken stock which adds more flavor than some that use water. I love it with sausage and peppers, sausage and beans, or with tomato sauce and cheese. It's so versatile, I even top it with an egg with shredded cheddar cheese. Be creative! It's the Italian's version of grits!
