This classic polenta recipe is made creamier with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano. Add more cheese if you wish for a richer and more flavorful polenta. Slideshow: Italian Food

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large pot, bring the water to a boil. While whisking, gradually pour the polenta into the water. Reduce the heat to low and continue whisking for an additional minute.

Step 2    

Continue cooking for about 30 minutes, stirring every 5-10 minutes, making sure to scrape the bottom of the pot. Remove the polenta from the heat when it is tender and creamy and has reached your desired thickness.

Step 3    

Stir the salt, butter and 3/4 cup of Parmigiano-Reggiano into the polenta until the butter is melted.

Step 4    

Serve garnished with the remaining 1/4 cup of Parmigiano-Reggiano.
