Super yummy! I haven't actually had polenta before, but I see it used a lot on Food Network so I decided to try it. This was definitely a good first recipe for someone new to polenta! I didn't have all the veggies listed, so I just used a ton of baby portobella mushrooms I had, various colors of bell peppers and chicken, spinach and mozzarella sausages I had from Meijer. I'm cheap so we always use Hunt's spaghetti sauce and I also used Jaxon cornmeal mush. With everything I had it was excellent! I'm waiting for my husband and father-in-law to come home and try it!
