"This was a SUCCESS for dinner with EVERYONE, kids and hubby! My hubby even went for seconds (doesn't happen too much since he can be pickier than the kids at times)! I used turkey chili w/ no beans and added about 1/2 cup of milk to the cornmeal mixture. Turned out great! :)"

"Very tasty meatless meal. Its important to bake the polenta until its light brown on top, or else it really is too soggy."
