My friend Yvonne served us this dish once and I just loved the smooth texture and great base it made for spaghetti sauce, or any other savory sauce. It is really easy and done in the microwave! This amount serves 4-6.

1/4 cup cornmeal, or polenta
1 cup water or chicken stock(vegetable stock would also do)
Mozzarella cheese chunks, 2 string cheese packs, or chunks of Monterey Jack cheese

Place cornmeal and liquid in a medium microwavable bowl. Add chunks of cheese on top. Microwave on high for 8-9 minutes, stirring every 3 minutes. Cook to desired consistency, and it will thicken as it cools.

Serve scoops covered with a nice marinara sauce, and a side salad for a light meal. Don't forget the wine!
