Ingredients

  • 6 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 3/4 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Bring the water to a boil in a heavy large saucepan. Add 2 teaspoons of salt. Gradually whisk in the cornmeal.
