1 ¾ Cup Cornmeal
6 Cup Water
3 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
2 teaspoons Salt
2 cups Leda’s Meat Sauce or 2 cups Gina’s Marinara Sauce
½ Cup Freshly Grated Parmigiano- Reggiano Cheese
Bring water and salt to a boil in a large saucepan. Slowly whisk in cornmeal. Continue to whisk constantly until polenta is stirred in are there are no lumps remaining.
Reduce heat to low, stir occasionally until cornmeal is tender, and the mixture thickens (depends on cornmeal used but approximately 5 minutes). Polenta is done when the consistency is creamy and the individual grains are tender.
Turn off heat and add butter until melted. Garnish with Parmesan, Leda’s Meat Sauce, Gina’s Marinara, or enjoy plain. Boun Appetito!
