      What I can only give 5 stars, this deserves more!!! Made for Fall 09 PAC Premie Adoption. Made exactly per the recipe except that instead of cornmeal I used Polenta. At first I was skeptical about this recipe because I love polenta and have never had it baked this way, but Ohhhhh My Goodness this is so spectacular and tasty. Definately worth making again and again, thank you so much for a great recipe.
