Ricotta Polenta with Fennel Pollen



Ingredients:
4 cups chicken stock
1 cup polenta
1/2 cup ricotta
1/2 teaspoon fennel pollen*
salt
freshly ground black pepper



Directions:

Bring the stock to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the polenta, salt, pepper, and pollen and stir until it starts to thicken, 2-5 minutes. Simmer 30 minutes. Stir in the  ricotta.

*I found this at an Italian market


My thoughts:
This recipe is so good, creamy and easy, everyone should make it this weekend. It seems simple but the ricotta adds a ton of flavor and texture to the polenta.
