This dish is absolutely devine. Used Italian tomato products, good pancetta and lamb.
Made the brown stock with chicken wings and carton chicken stock, reduced it down to 1 cup.
Did the red sauce exactly as directed.
The Polenta salt amount ,2 tabl, is a typo, just do as you would normal grits.
I used Taleggio cheese...
