Pesto Polenta

(0 Votes)
15 Min
1 Hr

Polenta is a side dish made from cornmeal that's versatile enough as is but can be flavored with almost anything! Try this version of polenta that features pesto and Parmesan cheese. Now, that's Italian!

What You'll Need:
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup (1/2-stick) butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups fine-ground yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup prepared pesto sauce
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
What To Do:
  1. Coat a 9" x 5" loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place the water, butter, and salt in a large saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat.
  2. Remove from the heat and slowly whisk in the cornmeal until the mixture is smooth and no lumps remain. Whisk in the pesto until completely blended; stir in the cheese.
  3. Spoon the mixture into the loaf pan, packing it down firmly. Allow to cool for at least 1 hour, or until firm. Invert the pan over a cutting board to remove the polenta. Cut into thick slices and serve.
Serving Tip

Slices of polenta are great served at room temperature (as above) and can also be rewarmed in the oven, pan-fried, or grilled before serving.
