    1. In a saucepan, heat the milk on medium heat until hot.
    2. Add the semolina, sugar and dash of salt and stir well.
    3. Stir the semolina every few minutes to avoid creating lumps. The semolina is ready when the cereal leaves a pattern on the top for several seconds when you are stirring it (approximately 10 minutes).
    4. Spoon the semolina into 8 oz pyrex dishes then sprinkle the top with cinnamon. The cereal will continue to firm up as it cools.
    5. Cover and refrigerate when cool.
