Creamy Polenta

Creamy Polenta can take the place of your mashed potatoes or can be in addition to potatoes. This recipe is best when you serve it immediately after cooking while it's still nice and creamy. You can use the leftovers from this recipe by chilling it in a pan until firm. Once firm, cut into squares and pan-sear. It's great for another meal.
