This recipe serves:   
Ingredients
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
2 1/4 cups skim milk
1 bay leaf
cayenne pepper to taste
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
salt to taste


Cooking Instructions
1. Heat the olive oil in a pot over low heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, keeping the heat low so the garlic doesn't burn.

3. Slowly, pour the cornmeal into the hot milk, whisking constantly. After all the cornmeal has been added, cook 3 to 4 minutes more, stirring constantly.
