Original Air Date : October 28, 2020

If you live within the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba register for a virtual cooking class where you will receive a 1-hour interactive instructive cook-along for you to learn new recipes featuring calcium and protein – bone building nutrients.

The first virtual class was on Wednesday October 28 and featured the recipe Stuffed Meatballs with Creamy Polenta. Each serving has 42g protein and calcium 450 mg.

Polenta is ground cornmeal and is creamy and delicious. It is traditionally used throughout Italy and comes together quickly in a variety of dishes. Serving stuffed meatballs over the polenta makes this dish extra special and is a change from the ordinary, spaghetti and meatballs.
