Creamy Polenta With Green Onions and Parsley

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Leslie in Texas

This is delicious with any braised dish but I like to serve it with my recipe for Braised Rabbit in Tuscan Sauce. Originally from a November 1984 issue of Bon Appetit that featured a Tuscan Dinner for 8.

This was my first attempt at polenta and it was good. Didn't take 30 minutes to cook though (more like 15-20), and was fairly easy to make. Thanks Leslie.
