Cooking Light ~ A Night at the Oscars

For Our Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club this month, we are celebrating A Night at the Oscar's.
First we were to pick a movie ~ then a dish to share 'virtually' with the supper club.
The movie I picked is 'Eat Pray Love' . . . because those are my favorite things in the world.
My dish is a Fontal Polenta with a Mushroom Saute.
This video on Cooking Light (Yes! A video. Isn't that appropriate for the Night at the Oscars?) will run you through the process of making this easy dish.
Basically, you will make a thick polenta with milk and broth. Stir until it is creamy. Add grated Fontina cheese and stir.
Pour this creamy polenta into individual gratin dishes. Top with more cheese and melt.
Meanwhile, back at the stove . . . Saute the blend of mushrooms for 3-4 minutes, until soft and flavorful. Top each dish with the saute'd mushrooms and serve.


 

Now . . . let's see what everyone else has brought for our Oscar Movie and a Supper.
Jerry has been watching 'Into The Woods' ~ and has made a Bean Soup
Val is making a Cranberry Orange Trifle ~ in tribute to the movie 'The Queen'
Sara has been watching 'The Hundred Foot Journey' and is making Pigonau Fermier Roti aux Epices Douces.
Shelby is bringing Pimento Cheese Tea Sandwiches

Y'all enjoy ~

I adore polenta Sandi and its topping of mushrooms takes it over the top. Thank you so much for bringing it to the table and entertaining us with a Movie.
