      Very nice! I 1/2'ed the recipe and the proportions worked well. We served it with Slow cooked Short ribs and the meal was great, for dinner for our Michigan early Spring nights.

      The flavor is good. I would make one correction to the recipe: Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray and pour the polenta into when it's done. Chill and let the polenta set up. Then you can slice it and grill it and do other creative things with it; and the texture is more agreeable.

      I made this to go with Ratatouille and it was EXCELLENT. I stood around basically dipping out of the pot with a spoon while it was thickening. I did add a couple extra tablespoons of cheese and some extra polenta (I like mine thick). Neither hurt the recipe.
