I'd never had polenta, but I saw this recipe at Cinnamon, Spice and Everything Nice, and really wanted to give it a try. It looked like comfort food to the max, full of cheesy, ooey goodness.
As usual I was incapable of following directions completely. The recipe called for parmesan and fontina, and I used romano (cause I had some) and havarti (cause I couldn't find fontina).
It was very easy to put together, and I love the part where the sage leaves get sauteed. I love the texture on these little guys.The finished product....
Three out of four family members approved. The fourth one just doesn't know what's good.
I can see this being very versatile...adding whatever makes you happy that particular day.
I'd like to say this reminded me of my Italian grandmother, but I didn't know either of my grandmothers, and they'd probably have served grits rather than polenta.
