- 1 can Hunts No Fat Spaghetti Sauce or your favorite homemade version (2 c. at least)
- 1 can green beans, drained (or 2 c. fresh,cooked)
- 1 1/4 c. cornmeal
- 1/2 t. salt
- 4 c. water
- Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese (opt.
Place water in large pan with salt, bring to a rapid boil and very slowly pour and stir cornmeal into water with a wire whisk. Reduce heat to medium and cook uncovered about 15 to 20 minutes, stir often. It is finished when it starts to leave the sides of the pan and is kind of fluffy. The more you stir, the better...(this is polenta). Heat green beans and sauce in microwave. To serve, place a big dollop of polenta on plate, spoon green beans in a circle around the polenta, and spoon sauce over all. Sprinkle with parmesan.....this is delicious and colorful.....even people who don't have to watch their diets, love this.
