Baked Creamy Polenta

I have added a new side dish to my dinner rotation.  Baked Creamy Polenta.  I purchase the polenta in bulk at my local health food store.  It has always been a favorite of mine, but it always seemed daunting cook from scratch.  When I made it, I used the premade polenta in the tubes, that always has the texture of rubber.  This recipe is a winner and very easy to make.

Baked Creamy Polenta

6 cups water

1 1/2 cups slow cooking polenta

1/4 cup butter (I use Kerrygold)

Parmesan cheese

salt and pepper to taste

Bring 6 cups salted water to a boil.. Whisking constantly, slowly add the polenta and reduce heat to medium-low. Whisk often, until polenta is tender. If the polenta becomes  thick too soon,  add more water and continue cooking. Add butter and ½ cup Parmesan to polenta and stir.

Add to baking dish, cover with additional parmesan cheese and bake in 350 degree of 20 minutes.
