In this vegetarian polenta casserole recipe, the choice of cheese is as important as which wild mushroom you use.

The polenta recipe calls for rich, nutty Taleggio or fontina cheese, but you can also use a good-quality washed rind cheese like Brie or Gouda. Source: EatingWell Magazine, May/June 2015
