So I found this one on the CL site but decided to review it here. FANNNNNNNNNNNNTASTIC!!!! Oh so good!!!!! I did a few things differently... used skim milk, used two big spoon fulls of canned pumpkin pie mix (hey, it's what I had on hand!), two big pinches of swiss cheese (again, on hand), and skipped the sage but only because it wouldn't have been good with the ragout that I paired with the polenta. It was SOOOOO GOOD!!!!! My "foodie" best friend couldn't stop eating the stuff, either!!!
