Well I'm not Italian, but I've made Polenta before.  I don't make it very often though, because my husband hates it. [Image: eyes.gif]  It's quite simply, coarsely ground cornmeal, a lot like grits.  Look for it in the health food section with the bulk items, or packaged (a brand like Bob's Red Mill.)  Anything in a tube sounds pretty scary to me, but what do I know.  I'd stick to cooking it from scratch.

My husband shudders at the thought, but you can eat it plain, with butter, put cheese in it, sauce over it, or you can even pour it out in a pan, cut slices when it cools and fry the slices until the outsides are crispy.  The insides stay creamy and moist and it is de-lish.
