There is one thing that reminded me home and it always makes me smile. It is Polenta. My Mom makes the BEST polenta, but her recipe involves a big (and heavy) iron pan and at least one hour of steering.
I like to cook, but I like to do more simple things. So, when I found Chef Kathleen's recipe, I was in heaven. I served with some (ground) meat sauce and freshly grated Parmesan. It was perfect.
And the left overs were eaten with some Butirro (fresh provolone cheese).
