Simply Not My Recipe For Creamy Polenta…

because I lifted it from the wonderful Simply Recipes (who I think may have lifted it from someone else…but who’s counting?)

Creamy Polenta
makes 2 large side portions

2 cups water
1/2 cup medium grain yellow corn meal
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup cream cheese (I used low-fat)
salt & pepper
olive oil & basil to garnish

Step 1: Bring the water to a boil in a medium sauce pan, add some salt, and quickly whisk in the corn meal. Step 2: Reduce heat to a simmer, add the butter, and stir the polenta until it begins to thicken. Mine was thick in less than 10 minutes. Step 3: When you are happy with the consistency, stir in the cream cheese, and season to taste. Step 4: Serve drizzled with olive oil.
