Soft Polenta With Parm
4 cups water
1 cup ground polenta
3 tbsp butter

Bring the water to a boil and season with salt. Pour in the polenta and stir until creamy and the polenta grains are soft.

If the polenta becomes too thick add a little more water. The polenta should be loose enough to pour.

Season with a little more salt and fresh cracked black pepper. Stir in the butter and Parmesan cheese and then serve with your favorite braised meat dish, like chicken meatball bourguignon.
