How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a 1 to 1-1/2 quart baking pan, stir together the water, salt, pepper and polenta.
  • Add the pieces of butter.
  • Place the container, uncovered, in the center of the top rack of the oven and bake for 40 minutes.
  • Open the oven, pull out the rack and stir the polenta (this is also the time to add any additional ingredients such as cheese).
  • Close the oven and bake the polenta for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes.
  • At this point you can either prepare it for frying or serve immediately; if you want to fry it, then you should form it in a pan and refrigerate for several hours.
  • It's great straight out of the oven with marinara sauce on it.
  • Good additions are Monterey Jack cheese, Parmesan, jalapenos, or even pine nuts.
