      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.

      This is delicious and so fast to put together. For some reason I enjoyed Pumpkin Polenta With Italian Sausage and Fennel much more, possibly because of the type of cheese (or lack of wine!), but they are both delicious and don't let the pumpkin make you think this is an autumn dish. The pumpkin flavor is subtle and this would be great anytime of the year.
