Standard

FullSizeRender

This was simply delicious – nice subtle flavors that went together perfectly!

Ingredients:

1/2 medium onion, chopped

2 oz. cubed pancetta

8 oz. sliced “exotic” mushrooms – I used trumpet mushrooms

1 1/2 c. Arborio rice

1/2 c. white wine

About 5 cups chicken broth

1/2 c. freshly grated parmesan cheese

Directions:

Heat some olive oil in a stock pot. Add the onions and sauté until beginning to become golden. Add the pancetta and cook until beginning to crisp. Add the mushrooms and continue cooking until softened.

Stir in the rice and coat it with the mixture in the pot. Add the wine and cook until the wine has been absorbed.

Begin adding the stock one ladle-ful at a time and stir constantly. When the broth has been absorbed, add more stock. Keep doing this until the rice is tender.

Stir in the Parmesan cheese until melted. Season with salt and pepper.
