take a tube of polenta and slice it. fry slices in butter. in another pan, fry up some veggies (green bell pepper, onions, garlic, carrots, etc) in butter or olive oil. add 1/3 cup (or whatever) of red wine and a few tbsp. of spaghetti sauce. stir and simmer. in anther sauce pan, heat spaghetti sauce with herbs to taste. shred some cheese (mozzarella is a good pick), put out some sour cream, hot sauce, seeds or nuts, whatever else you might want to top it with. place polenta on plates and cover in sauce and veggies. add toppings. serve with red wine or whatever you have .

Hey, I noticed polenta in the title and thought I'd chime in with my polenta recipe...

1/2 quart corn meal
1 1/2 quart half and half
chicken stock

Put half and half in a medium size pot, salt until it is well seasoned, can even over season a bit here.

Bring to a boil and wisk in corn meal slowly, turn heat down to low.

Use a rubber spatula to stir and keep it from sticking to sides bottom.

As the moisture reduces out, add chicken stock.

Do this for about 10-15 minutes, adding stock, letting it reduce..

After that let it reduce until it is pretty thick(basically as thick as you want the heated finished product to be, will thicken more upon cooling).

Once desired consistency is reached, add a nice sized tblspoon of butter, about 2 fl oz of honey, and a medium sized handful of grated parmesean.

Pour into a container and refrigerate uncovered. (I usually use a 1/3 hotel pan, but if no access to restaurant ware a small baking pan will work.

Once it cools it will slide out and you can cut/punch out the desired shape/sizes of polenta.

If you want a free lunch, you need to learn how to eat good advice.

My mom's been making polenta for years and this is the first time I've heard of it being made with honey, chicken stock and half and half.  She always stirred it with a wooden spoon and when it was done, she'd empty the pot on a wooden cutting board and slice the polenta with a string.
I guess that's how they did it in Italy :smile:

Just a little nervous from the fall.
