Ingredients

1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
2 1/4 cups skim milk
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

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.

2. Add the skim milk, bay leaf and cayenne pepper. Increase the heat and bring the milk to a boil.

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.

4. Remove the pot from the heat and slowly stir in the grated cheese.

5. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
