Scott Conant makes his polenta in a crockpot at his restuarant to serve his guests. You can make as much as You want, and Hes says its the creamiest polental. I just added mascarpone to make it creamier. I call polenta the italian mash. Its so much easier and much less time consuming than mashed potatoes. Also a nice change.

How to Make Slow Cooked Mascarpone Polenta

Step-by-Step

  • 1Remember not to use quik cooking polenta.
  • 2Pour one quart of boiling water in med-lg crockpot.
    Pour polenta in a stream, and start striring and wisking.
  • 3Put lid on and cook on low.
    Stir polenta every hour or so so polenta dont stick to bottom. It will appear to look done after 3 hours but isnt, cooking time 6hrs. The longer you cook the cremier the polenta. If it appears to be looking too stiff add some more heavy cream, a little at a time.
