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

before serving.
