    I've never made polenta before, I always bought the expensive premade version, and I found this recipe to be very easy! I don't buy canned OJ, so I just poured the mix into a small baking dish and cut it into squares. I also didn't use salt, I just used a little vegetable bouillon instead. I will be making this again soon for a casserole recipe. Thanks for sharing!

    This recipe for polenta was easy, quick and good. It fit all my requirements. I have tried one other polenta recipe but this one is best. I also used veggie cans, so the rounds were bigger. Thankyou to GinnyP from Sheila in Canada

    This was excellent! I wanted to know how to make polenta, and this recipe was effortless and yummy! I didn't have OJ cans on hand, but used vegetable cans sprayed with Pam, and they worked great. I added a little parmesean cheese to them as well. They turned out great - Thanks!
