Prepare the polenta according to the package directions; as soon as it’s cooked, transfer to a greased baking sheet, level it with a spoon and allow to cool.

Use a pastry ring to cut the polenta into circles and fry them in plenty of oil, then drain the excess oil.
Arrange the fried polenta discs on a serving platter, topping each with a spoon of Grana Padano Riserva sauce and sliced mushrooms.
Serve the fried polenta garnished with chives, shavings of Grana Padano and freshly ground pepper.
