Serve with butter and herb mashed potatoes made according to package directions instead of polenta.
Substitute 1 to 1 1/2 cups store-bought shredded carrots for the chopped carrots.
Polenta is cornmeal mush and is a favorite in Italy. Look for prepared polenta in tubes in the produce or packaged foods section of larger grocery stores. Simply slice it, and cook the slices quickly in a skillet in melted butter until golden brown.
