Pre-cooked. Ready to heat & serve. USDA organic. Fat free. Wheat free. Gluten free. History of Polenta: In Italy, Polenta is a versatile alternative to pasta, bread or rice, and is especially suited for meat dishes that have plenty of sauce. In northern Italy, it's as popular as pasta is in the south. Traditionally, the first cooking step required stirring for 40-45 minutes in a copper kettle over a hot fire. Pre-cooked Polenta eliminates this tedious chore, while preserving Polenta's ancient Italian heritage. There may be some water separation. This is normal. Serving Suggestions: Think of Polenta as an excellent alternative to pasta, rice, or potatoes. Since our polenta is already cooked, you simply need to heat it up to enjoy. Slice 1/2 inch thick rounds and microwave, saute, fry, bake, broil or grill. Top polenta with your favorite sauce, gravy, or cheese. Substitute thin slices of polenta for pasta in your favorite lasagna recipe. Do the same with Southwestern ingredients (re-fried beans, green chili, and cheese) and create a tamale pie to remember. Try replacing polenta in a recipe that calls for tofu. For more polenta recipe ideas, visit us at: www.quinoa.net. Certified organic by Quality Assurance International (QAI).
