If you do not like goat cheese, then just skip the goat cheese. People are missing out on polenta as a side dish for many meals. Its creamy, its simple, its delicious. Polenta is ground corn (found near the flour/sugar in the grocery store). If you cant find polenta, you can substitute regular medium or coarsely-ground cornmeal instead. Don't use finely ground cornmeal or you'll have mush.
