A note about serious food allergies

To enjoy with the polenta, we included a sophisticated take on the classic Italian meatball. Rich lamb replaces boring beef with a sauce that is sweet and tangy, pairing well with the rich and creamy polenta. Serve with a glass of your favorite red wine and relax – life is good.
