Source: Everyday Food, April 2009


  • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon red-pepper flakes


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 4 cups water to a boil. Whisking constantly, gradually add 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, whisking frequently, until thick and creamy, 2 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in 1/2 cup grated Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper.
