Giada De Laurentiis polenta with spinach


Giada De Laurentiis' creamy polenta with spinach

If there is an Italian equivalent to mashed potatoes, something you can serve with—or under—just about anything, it’s got to be polenta. Maybe it’s the Italian in me, but i like its texture and the sweet corn flavour a lot more. Spinach makes it somewhat virtuous and also so pretty. This is rich, so serve it in small portions.
