Cook's Notes

De La Estancia is an ideal quick-cooking polenta, not processed or pre-cooked, and made from a variety of flint corn that is lower in starch and higher in protein, yielding a smooth, creamy polenta in only minutes. It's available in many grocery stores and on Amazon.

    This was very good. I didn't have an onion so I used shallots and the polenta I used took about five minutes to cook. I'm not sure I'll make it again any time soon, but I'll keep this recipe for sure.

    Thanks for sharing this as a video on FB. Once I saw it, I knew I had to make it. I made it tonight for dinner and it was so delicious (and not to mention - easy)! I will definitely make this again!
