For us, cheesey polenta and meat sauce is comfort food. It’s soothing, warm, and yummy. Add butterfly garlic shrimp and it’s even better.
I made up a simple batch of polenta with 4 parts liquid (water or chicken broth) to 1 part polenta. Once the liquid came to a simmer, I poured in the polenta and stirred until it started to come away from the side, about 10 minutes, then added the good stuff – butter, cream, and cheese.
Tomato – meat sauce over top…. pan seared garlic shrimp… and it’s what’s for dinner. Gooey oohey deliciousness.
