Polenta?

I bought polenta at the store the other day, but have no clue what to make with it...Any suggestions?

My hubby makes a great herbed polenta...it's in a Giada cookbook from WS...it makes a ton, so we only make half, and still have leftovers!

I love mine somewhat liquidy, and eat it like grits or beans.  I just add butter and parmesan cheese, and/or any kind of herbs you like, and add enough water for about baked beans consistency.  


Restaurants like to make it so thick it hardens when cold, and they cut it into different shapes and fry them.  It's good that way too, but I like mine thin.

i've used this recipe many many times and it's delicious. it's more of a solid polenta, but you don't need to fry it or anything. it's baked and then you just cut it into squares and serve:

I make soft polenta similar to this recipe:

Most other recipes I see online call for chicken stock and/or dairy (milk or heavy cream), but I find butter and parmesan simple and delicious enough.
