“This recipe is so fast and easy you can serve polenta as a side dish any time. When it is done cooking, you can swirl in one or more additional flavor builders such as a tablespoon of butter, a tablespoon or two of parmesan cheese, chopped chives, fresh-ground pepper, or a tablespoon or two of half-and-half. This makes two generous servings with no leftovers.”
