      Loved this! We made Polenta using our own recipe (from Cook's Illustrated), then used the vegetable portion of this recipe for the topping. Perfect combination of vegetables to compliment the polenta. Great topping!

      Loved this! Absolutely delicious - I quartered the recipe since I was only cooking for myself, and I also mixed the parmesan into the polenta instead of sprinkling it over at the end. Delicious! First time I'd ever cooked polenta and it worked really nicely.

      I am not going to rate this because maybe something I did was wrong... or maybe that's just polenta. I used Arrowhead Mills organic cornmeal for this... but I thought it was very bland! I couldn't taste corn or anything, it was just there. The greens were yummy though! I had the leftover polenta with some salt, pepper and garlic on it for breakfast with fried eggs over it and sauteed spinach and mushrooms and that was very good!
