Polenta and cheese

    20 min

    Polenta is a dish made in the Italian mountains, originally a peasant food, since it was made of maize, but at the same time rich and tasty. It can be eaten with stew, braise, mushrooms, ragù or Gorgonzola cheese. It is a great dish because you can prepare it in 8 minutes and use the polenta left the day after, frying it and adding cheese or ham.

    1. Fill a cooking pot with 1 litre of water and add salt. The quantity of salt can be modified later on depending on your taste.
    2. When the water boils, add the polenta flour all in one go, paying attention to stir it from the start, always clockwise.
    3. Continue to stir the polenta for at least 8 minutes. If you prefer you can prolong the cooking time but add water when the 8 minutes have passed, or the polenta will burn and you can also damage your pan.
    4. Take a cutting board, better if made of wood, paying attention that it is completely clean. Pour the polenta on the cutting board trying to distribute it equally.
    5. So take a small pot and pour milk, not too much, just enough to cover all the surface of the cooking pot.
    6. Add Gorgonzola, paying attention to cook it at low fire until the gorgonzola is melted and stir it until it forms a cream. Add grated Parmesan and stir again.
    7. When you have a delicious cream, the sauce is ready. Don't panic if all the Gorgonzola did not melt, because having some pieces of cheese inside will make the sauce tastier.
    8. Pour the sauce on the polenta with the help of a wooden spoon.
    9. Now you have your delicious polenta. Cut it in slices and serve hot. Enjoy your ITALIAN meal!
