Besides using it as is, I love to make Pesto as I've shown in an earlier post. But once you've made Pesto, what do you do with it?
How about some creamy Pesto Polenta?
This truly has to be one of the simplest things you can do and it certainly livens up plain polenta.
Whether you use the quick mix type of polenta or the more traditional, just add Pesto, to taste, as you approach the end of the cooking time. I still like to add extra parmesan as well.
This is a great accompaniment to stews or casseroles.
