Polenta is similar to grits. In northern Italy, where it is most common, it can be prepared and served in many different ways. In its most basic preparation, polenta is a smooth and dense porridge. It can be served alongside many different foods, such as cheese, vegetables, fish, meat, and game, the proteins most often in a sauce or guazzetto. When chilled, polenta can be fried, grilled, or baked.
