Polenta is a versatile form of ground corn that originated in Northern Italy.
In Italy, soft polenta is often a replacement for bread during a meal or instead of the pasta course, served with butter and cheese and possibly shaved truffles. Polenta is also served as a contorno (side dish) to regional dishes or eaten in cake form, layered with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and baked.
Another way to enjoy polenta is grilled and served with bruschetta-like toppings like mushrooms and tomatoes. And leftover polenta can be fried and covered in butter or cheese.
