Toyed with butter, grated Parmesan cheese and abundant taleggio Dop so that it is streamlined. No one can resist a polenta with stringy cheese. Is’ my own version of “polenta concia”.

Polenta Dop cheese and mixed mushrooms

To prepare the polenta with Taleggio cheese with mixed mushrooms I suggest to start with the sauce made of mushrooms. Clean the mushrooms, removing the end of the stem and carefully brushing them, Then wipe them with a slightly dampened with water cloth to remove any trace of land. Cut the mushrooms into not too small pieces. In a large saucepan, Brown the clove of garlic and a bit of chilli. Add mushrooms and cook for 3 or 4 minutes. Add a little salt and a little fresh ground black pepper and finally, fire off, chopped parsley. Put the mushrooms aside.

For the polenta must follow the doses indicated on the packaging (They may vary greatly depending on the polenta that purchased) in order to respect the proportions in the amount of water and flour for polenta. Once the doses established, pour the water into a very large pot, add a pinch of salt (Do not worry, you're always in time to add more), bring the water to a boil and pour the cornfloal into the rain, stirring with a vigorous whisk, so as to mix water and polenta.

Cook over very low heat porridge, stirring constantly, 45 minutes. You can also cover the pot and cook (I suggest you set the stove smaller to lower the flame can, better if with a flame spreader) for a few minutes following and mix does not constantly: a little polenta will stick to the bottom, but it really will be a minimum.

When the polenta is almost ready, sample to check the salt and add the butter. Mantecate, then add the Parmesan cheese and Taleggio Dop into chunks, stirring until the cheese will not be completely melted.

Serve the hot polenta, the sauce separately mushrooms or fungi already placed over polenta. Bon appétit!
