Bake this Italian-inspired star-shaped polenta stars – a cheesy side dish.
Updated Nov 12, 2010

Ingredients

  • 5 cups water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Steps

  • 1
    Grease 15x10x1-inch baking pan. In large saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil. While stirring water in a circular motion with wire whisk, add cornmeal in a slow steady stream, keeping water boiling continuously. Reduce heat to low; continue cooking, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick, about 5 to 15 minutes depending on type of cornmeal.
  • 2
    Add cream, cheese and Italian seasoning; mix well. Pour into greased pan. Cool 15 minutes. At this point, polenta can be covered and refrigerated until serving time.
  • 3
    To serve, heat oven to 400°F. With assorted star-shaped cookie cutters, cut polenta into stars. (Polenta scraps can be combined and re-rolled to cut additional stars.) Brush both sides of each star with oil; place on ungreased cookie sheets.
