The traditional way to prepare and serve polenta.
Historically, polenta was a Northen Italian dish consumed mainly by the poor farmers. Traditionally prepared in copper pots (called a “piaolo” or “mescolo”) and wooden spoons for stirring. Even today in Italy this tradition is considered the only proper way to cook polenta. Once placed on the wooden board, the polenta is cut with a sewing thread held tightly with the fingersof each hand.
Tomato sauce with sausage on polenta is a very savory dish commonly enjoyed throughout Italy.
