1½ cups polenta or ground corn

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

½ cup Mozzarella Cheese Shredded

2 tablespoons mascarpone

Kosher salt

White pepper

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

5 cups thinly sliced mixed mushrooms (such as chanterelles, cremini, shiitake, beech and oyster)

1 small shallot, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely sliced

½ tablespoon finely chopped chives

½ tablespoon finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

White truffle oil OR Olive Oil

DIRECTIONS

1. In a large sauce pot, bring 5 cups of salted water to a boil. Slowly add the polenta and whisk constantly until tender, about 7 to 10 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to stir in the butter, mozzarella and mascarpone. Season with salt and white pepper. Set aside.

2. In a large skillet set over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the mushrooms and cook until they soften slightly, about 7 to 10 minutes. Add the shallot and garlic and cook until translucent. Season with salt.

3. Stir the herbs into the polenta and spread the polenta onto a serving platter. Spoon the mushrooms onto the center of the polenta and drizzle lightly with truffle oil. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and serve immediately.
