1 In a 2-quart heavy saucepan, bring 4 cups water to a boil. In a bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, salt, and the remaining 1 cup water.
2 Pour the mixture into the boiling water and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes or until the polenta is thick and creamy. If the polenta becomes too thick, stir in a little more water.
3 In a small skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until the onion is tender and golden, about 10 minutes. Scrape the onion into the polenta.
4 Place a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Butter a 9 × 3-inch baking pan.
5 Pour about one third of the polenta into the pan. Set aside 1/4 cup of the Parmigiano for the topping. Scatter half of each of the remaining cheeses onto the polenta layer in the pan. Make a second layer of polenta and the cheese. Pour on the remaining polenta and spread it evenly.
6 Sprinkle the reserved 1/4 cup of Parmigiano over the polenta. Dot with the remaining butter. Bake 30 minutes or until bubbling around the edge. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
