My friend made this recipe for a dinner she was hosting a while back. At that point I had not had polenta in years and I realized I was missing out. This polenta was delicious. She served it with roasted brussel sprouts and salmon. I've made this roast chicken before and other times with a poached on top. The Parmesan in this recipe gives the polenta its flavor. I tend to eat way too much of this when I cook it, but it's hard to resist. This is also a very easy side dish and it works great for yourself and is also nice enough to serve for guests. You can make this look nicer by adding a sprinkle of freshly ground pepper and some shaved Parmesan on top.
