Very tasty and comforting. Almost a winter holiday-ish taste, with the nutmeg. One note, I did have to double the amount of polenta/cornmeal going in, because the amount listed didn't set right. It went perfectly once i doubled that, however. Definitely a great meal, especially with a little cheese on top, and a salad on the side.
