Bring the stock to the boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Gradually add the polenta, stirring constantly.

Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring, for 3 mins or until thick. Stir in the parmesan. Spread into the prepared tin. Dust the top with more polenta then chill for 30 mins or until firm.
