Creamy Polenta with Asparagus
Creamy Polenta with Asparagus is a simple and scrumptious recipe for the North Italian porridge served with crispy asparagus and finished off with butter and Parmesan shavings for the perfect side dish. Delicious and comfort food at its best!
I absolutely love polenta with its wonderfully creamy and buttery corn flavor. And my family often enjoys this savory porridge for dinner. Topped with blanched asparagus and flavorful Parmesan cheese, it transforms into a restaurant-quality dish while being a breeze to make at home. Lemon zest and juice give a powerful punch of freshness, and finally, some freshly ground black pepper is always a good idea, too. To avoid lumps in polenta, make sure to pour the cornmeal into the saucepan with boiling water gradually and whisk constantly as you go.
