Risotto is a truly Italian Dish. We don't eat it in Sicily though, it's a comfort food from Northern Italy. Risotto is made with a short grain rice known as Arborio and the dish gets its creamy consistency by adding broth to the rice and allowing the liquid to be absorbed as you go. It may sound complicated which is why we asked Chef Federico to show you how simple it is. Check out his video at the bottom of the page!
Beautiful colors and inviting flavors will make this hearty side dish a keeper in your recipe box.
This is an easy side dish that makes good use of summer squash and fresh bell peppers.
