Here's how you make and how you eat polenta the traditional way.
  Polenta 600 Gram
  Warm water 1 1⁄2 Liter
  Stock 2 Liter (vegetable or meat)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Meat sauce/Store-bought regular pasta sauce 1 Cup (16 tbs) (meat or vegetarian)
  Cracked black pepper 1 Teaspoon
  Cheese 2 Tablespoon, grated (Optional)

1.In a large sauce pan, heat the water. Add polenta to warm water and keep stirring to avoid lump formation.
2.Once the polenta is cooked start adding vegetable stock. Do wear gloves while doing it as you could burn your hand.
3. Add one ladle vegetable stock at one time and mix gently until absorbed.
4.Once the polenta is cooked to creamy consistency remove pan off the heat and turn the mixture onto a flat clean surface. You could use wooden cutting board too.
5.Spread the meat/tomato sauce over the spread polenta and sprinkle some cheese and black pepper.

6. Cut into pieces and serve warm as a side to meats or stews.
