Parmesan Polenta


4½ cups chicken broth

¾ cup polenta or coarse ground cornmeal

½ cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese plus 2 tablespoons for garnish

1 pinch cayenne

1 tablespoon butter

salt and pepper to taste


Pour the chicken broth into a large saucepan and place over high heat.

Season the broth with salt and pepper, then bring to a boil.

While whisking, slowly pour the polenta into the broth a little at a time. Be sure not to add too much of the polenta too soon or this will create lumps.

Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer the polenta for 20 minutes, stirring frequently.

Stir in the ½ cup Parmesan, cayenne, butter, and more salt and pepper, if needed. Sprinkle with the 2 tablespoons of Parmesan and pepper, then serve.
