I have to admit, I was never a fan of polenta because I didn’t know how to cook it properly. This version from Melissa d’Arabian ($10 Dollar Dinners) made me a lover of the side dish. All I changed was using fat free half & half instead of regular.

1½ c. Fat Free Half & Half, divided
1 c. 1% Milk
4 T Butter, divided,
Pinch Salt
1/3 c. Course Corn Meal (ie Polenta)
1/2 c. Parmigiano Regianno Cheese, freshly grated

Non –Stick Cooking Spray
In a sauce pot, combine 1 c. half & half, milk, 2 T butter & salt.
Melt the butter over medium heat.
Whisk in corn meal & continue whisking 3 minutes.
Spray a crock pot with cooking spray.
Pour polenta into the crock pot.
Cook on HI for 2 hours stirring every 30 minutes.
Just before serving, stir in remaining ½ c. half & half, 2 T butter & cheese.
Stir to make creamy.
