Always take care to buy quick-cook instant polenta. It’s tastes just as good as regular polenta. Making the real thing requires a lot of stirring and can be quite messy — it bubbles and sputters in the pan like a volcano as it cooks! This recipe makes 6 servings (each 1/2 cup) so remember to adjust the calorie count of your meal if you have more than this.
