(Pistils of saffron are the same thing as threads, so you can compare grams to threads as in the following: “equivalents; 1 gram of threads = approx 12 threads = 2 teaspoons of threads = 1 teaspoon crumbled = 1/2 teaspoon powdered”. You can find this information in the article here:)

I can’t believe I forgot to toss in a recipe for plain polenta for Memorial Day. All US Holidays are opportunities for me to put in cross-over Italian cultural plain dishes and I can just remember thinking every Memorial Day how lovely it was that people could all get together and pray as a nation about being the same people. And I wouldn’t so much each polenta then, I mean, that happens all year long on odd days here and there, (cream of wheat is known as semolina, so yes, I also have a bowl of semolina from time to time, but I prefer polenta), but for the sake of the argument, I think polenta (as well as semolina) could be a solemnized appetizer or breakfast, you know, alongside of a very important breakfast muffin and a BBQ brunch.

This is really a delicious dish that makes you think about putting aside your cream of wheat comfort days and taking this on instead before you decide whatever else happens in the kitchen that day.
But for some reason, the recipe naturally assumes everyone knows how to make besciamella (white sauce) and no, this is probably not even a laughable assumption anywhere outside an Italian gourmet kitchen, I mean anywhere in the world.
So beneath this is a link to a besciamella (white sauce) on Saveur magazine online, that, hopefully, fits the needs for this excellent and creamy sausage mac & cheese.
