  1. This is delicious. I did make some adjustments due to taste preference and ingredient availability. I doubled the recipe and added 1 pound of ground beef, cooked. Due to a remodel at the grocery store, I couldn’t find the precooked polenta so I resorted to the quick cooking polenta in the box and made it with stock. That worked out well and gave me enough to cover 11 mini pie tins. What I will do next time is to increase the spices a little bit to compensate for the ground beef and I would do better about adding salt into the quick cooking polenta. I’m horrible about having veggies in my diet and this recipe is definitely helping me increase my veggie intake.
