Polenta is a great substitute for pasta, and you can do so much more with it. I absolutely love to fry it and I recently made a lasagna from it, too.
Step 1: What you'll need:
- 1 cup cornmeal or corn grits
- 3 cups water
- 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of salt
- 2 tablespoons of butter/margarine
- pepper to taste
- parmesan/romano/asiago - optional but tasty!
You'll also need a large sauce pan and a nice sturdy spoon.
