Risotto – an Italian classic and rightly so.
If any dish needs total devotion and some TLC it is a risotto and you will not regret the time you give this velvety rice dish.
This risotto has the saltiness of the pancetta and earthiness of the mushrooms and then this delightful spring taste of peas pops through and then a tangy parmesan to bring it all together in a harmonious warming meal.
We absolutely love risotto here in our home and although this is our favourite the dish is actually very versatile.
If you fancy your risotto simple and flavoursome just eliminate the peas, pancetta and mushrooms. Cooking for friends of which maybe one is vegetarian – just change from chicken to vegetable stock, take out the pancetta and add some spinach at the same time as the peas.
So what is your favourite risotto recipe and let me know what you think of this one. I am sure you will fall in love with it straight away.
