Yummy dinner is ready for everyone to enjoy!

Creamy Polenta
1 cup polenta (or yellow cornmeal)
4 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon kosher salt
freshly ground pepper
3/4 cup freshly shredded Parmesan

Bring water to boil in medium saucepan. Add salt and whisk in polenta/corn meal. Lower heat to simmer and cook polenta, whisking often for 10-15 minutes to prevent it from sticking on the bottom of the pot, until thick. Add butter and cheese and more salt/pepper to taste.
