Creamy Soft Polenta

Using the basic polenta recipe from Polenta Three Ways. You can either proceed with the hot polenta mixture, or do as I did and chill the entire batch, then use the scraps from cutting out the fried polenta to make this soft polenta. If so, then just chop the scraps up and put them in a pot.

I added a good smudge of butter, a little bit of mozzarella cheese, and some milk to thin it out. I heated this up slowly until everything melted together and polenta was smooth. I used skim milk because that's all I had on hand, but for a really decadent version, use cream. You can also use any cheese you wish or a combination. And feel free to stir in some herbs as well!
