This recipe will leave your guests saying “I can’t talk right now, I’m enjoying this blissful flavor!” SERIOUSLY!
This recipe is quite simply INSANELY delicious! And I do mean mean INSANE!
For the most part, I take no credit for this recipe’s incredible taste, but I did make a few personal adjustments that contributed to making the flavor blow over the top! For instance, I was not impressed with the quality of the prosciutto offered in my local market, so I really amped up the prosciutto to compensate for the weakness in flavor of the prosciutto that was available. This certainly proved to be worth the enhancement!
I also used corn meal instead of instant polenta (because corn meal and polenta are truly the exact same thing . . . one just has an Italian name! Corn meal is corn meal, but stone-ground corn meal is a completely different texture altogether!) NOTE: the original recipe calls for instant polenta with a cooking time of 2 minutes. However, if you choose to use regular yellow corn meal instead, as I did, you will need to cook it for 20 – 30 minutes while constantly stirring. ALSO ADD another 1/2 cup of heavy cream! I cheated and added that to make it super extra creamy!
I also added a little bit more Fontina cheese to the recipe. It worked and that’s all that matters to my family’s discriminating taste buds.
The theme for this month’s Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club is “Deceptively Easy Gourmet”.
Trust me, you will deceive anyone who tastes this Pork Saltimbocca with Creamy Polenta into believing that you spent hours in the kitchen when in fact you only spent an hour and a half MAX! There is simply nothing not to love about his recipe! We can still enjoy the delights of eating well while at the same time eating with an orientation for better health and well-being!
Cheers and salute’!
