Polenta with Parmesan and Butter
Why This Recipe Works
Our goal when developing our polenta recipe was to find a simple, foolproof method for fluffy, creamy polenta, achieved without lumps or constant stirring. We found that a heavy-bottomed saucepan on the stove's lowest possible setting (or in conjunction with a flame tamer) shielded the polenta from cooking too rapidly. Keeping the cover on the pot held in moisture and reduced the risk of scorching the polenta, even when we stirred infrequently.
