Polenta Pie(Polenta Pasticciata)
Make a very stiff mush of cornmeal cooked in milk. Salt it well and
spread out on the bread board in a sheet about one inch thick. When
cold, cut in little diamonds or squares and place these in a buttered
baking dish. Prepare the Bolognese sauce according to the following
recipe: Chop 1/4 lb. round steak, a slice of pork or bacon, one small
carrot 1/4 onion, one large piece celery. Put the meat and vegetables
over the fire with a piece of butter. When the meat has browned add half
a tablespoon of flour and wet the mixture with hot water or broth,
allowing it to simmer from half an hour to an hour. It is done when it
is the consistency of a thick gravy.
Make a smooth white sauce with milk cornstarch and butter. Over a layer
of the polenta, cut as above and placed in the baking dish sprinkle
some grated cheese and a few tablespoons each of the white sauce and the
meat sauce. Repeat until the dish is full. Bake until the top is nicely
browned. This dish seems very elaborate, but it is very delicious and a
meal in itself.
The Bolognese sauce is also used to season macaroni or spaghetti in lieu
of the tomato sauce or the brown stock.
Polenta With Sausages(Polenta colle salsicce)
The polenta is a very popular dish in Northern Italy and can be
prepared in various ways. Always, however, it is better to serve with
the addition of sausages, or with birds or tomato paste.
The polenta is practically cornmeal and it is made with the so-called
farina gialla or yellow flour.
The ingredients for a good polenta are one pound of corn meal,
preferably granulous, one quart and a half of water, salted in
proportion, one piece of butter, one cup and a half of milk.
Pour the meal little by little into boiling water, continually stirring
with a wooden spoon. When the meal is half cooked, put the butter and
pour the milk little by little. While the polenta boils, place on the
fire in a little saucepan a tablespoonful of olive oil or a small piece
of butter. When the oil is hot or the butter is melted, put some
sausages repeatedly pricked with a fork.
When the sausages are cooked, pour the polenta hot in a dish and place
the sausages and the gravy in a cavity practised in the middle. Serve
In cooking the sausages two or three bay-leaves may be added and removed
PolentaPolenta is made of ground Indian-corn, and may be used either as a
separate dish or as a garnish for roast meat, pigeons, fowl It is
made like porridge; gradually drop the meal with one hand into boiling
stock or water, and stir continually with a wooden spoon with the other
hand. In about a quarter of an hour it will be quite thick and smooth,
then add a little butter and grated Parmesan, and one egg beaten up. Let
it get cold, then put it in layers in a baking-dish, add a little butter
to each layer, sprinkle with plenty of Parmesan, and bake it for about
an hour in a slow oven. Serve hot.
Polenta PasticciataIngredients: Polenta, butter, cheese, mushrooms, tomatoes.
Prepare a good polenta as above, put it in layers in a fireproof dish,
and add by degrees one and a half ounces of melted butter, two cooked
mushrooms cut up, and two tablespoonsful of grated cheese. (If you like,
you may add a good-sized tomato mashed up.) Put the dish in the oven,
and before serving brown it over with salamander.
Polenta Corn MealTake an iron kettle, put in two quarts water with one tablespoon salt.
Heat and before boiling, slowly pour in your corn meal, stirring
continuously until you have it very stiff. Put on lid and let boil for
an hour or more. Turn out in a pan and keep warm. Later this is turned
out on a platter for the table.

following sauce is added with a teaspoon Parmesan cheese added to each

of New England, and the mush of the South. It costs five cents.
