This is the lightest Polenta I have eaten. In Winter, I bake it in the oven, in Summer, it goes on the grill. When we grill it, we grill it hot for a short period of time so that the outside is crisp, and the inside creamy. Whenever I buy pine nuts, I toast all of them in the oven on a cookie sheet, so that we always have them available for polenta or other yummy foods. This is a favorite of our guests at our Summer parties.
