Creamy Polenta

Polenta is a very simple, old dish of Italian origin made from flour obtained from a number of cereals, the most commonly used today being corn.  This boiled cornmeal may be served as a hot porridge, used as a vessel for any sauce or stew or it may be allowed to cool and solidify into a loaf that can be baked, fried or grilled.
