Oven-Baked Butternut and Sage Polenta

December 5, 2012

Oven baked polenta is a great hassle-free way to enjoy this hearty Italian side dish.  This version with classic winter flavors of sage and nutmeg is comforting and aromatic, vibrant enough to serve along grilled sausages and game, subtle enough to serve with braised short ribs or osso buco.  To make it even easier, substitute canned pumpkin for the butternut.

Ingredients:
2 Tbsp butter, divided
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 small butternut squash  (big enough to yield about 1.5 cups)
4 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup stone-ground cornmeal polenta (not instant or pre-cooked polenta)
