Instructions
  1. Prepare polenta a day in advance or at least 3 hours prior to baking.
  2. Set the water on the fire in a wide bottomed pot and add the salt. When it comes to a boil, add the corn meal in a very slow stream (you don’t want the pot to stop boiling), stirring constantly with a wooden spoon to keep lumps from forming. Continue stirring, in the same direction, as the mush thickens, for about a half-hour (the longer you stir the better the polenta will be; the finished polenta should have the consistency of firm mashed potatoes), adding boiling water as necessary. The polenta is done when it peels easily off the sides of the pot.
  3. Add the olive oil, garlic, poblano pepper, 1 scallion and three quarters of the cheese. And mix thoroughly. Salt and Pepper to taste. Smooth the polenta mix, cover and let cool for another hour or two until firm.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place covered baking pan dish in oven 20 minutes. Then sprinkle the rest of the scallions and cheese on top. And bake for another 10 minutes uncovered.
  5. Serve it [email protected]!
