Ever notice how you go through phases with certain dishes — practically living off of them for months and then one day you just...stop? Back when my husband and I first moved in together, polenta featured big in our weekly meal routine. It was easy, it was cheap, and it was darn good, especially with a handful of shredded cheese stirred into the pot.
But time flies and tastes change, and I recently realized that it had been years since I last made polenta for a simple weeknight meal. Today's one-bowl meal is a reminder of how good warm polenta and a handful of fresh ingredients can truly be.
