      I love polenta, but all that stirring makes me nuts, and I always burn the bottom of the pan. This is such an easy way to make polenta, and it keeps very well in the fridge, since I'm the only one in the family who likes the stuff. I used some great local Parmesan cheese instead of the gorgonzola, and served it with some super-oregano infused tomato sauce. This makes a great breakfast as well! Thanks Chia, you've posted a winner for me!

      Hello there..this is the first recipe that I tried. I actually cooked my polenta mixture for a further 5 mins in the microwave, as my DH loves all of his food 'well cooked' After the mixture was cooked I poured it into a pyrex baking dish and generously layered it with grated cheese. I popped it under the grill just to make it golden brown on top, then sprinkled it with chopped spring onion..yummy :)

      Hubby: "I like this. You can make this again for me." Love those words. I used chicken broth instead of water and I used Parmesan cheese because it's what I had. Thank you! Sure beats stirring!
