very good and very easy meal to make. The polenta bubbles a lot so be careful and wear long sleeves lol. It doesn't have a lot of pumpkin flavor which is fine for the DH who doesn't like polenta anyway. I recommend trying it. BTW it makes two very generous servings. Also would eat this on a cold rainy day. It's very comforting.
