Find lots of rich and creamy risotto recipes featuring the naturally sweet flavours of butternut squash, pumpkin and courgette.
Pumpkin and pancetta are a classic combination in many Italian dishes. This risotto is one of them. The flavours are perfectly balanced due to the sweetness of pumpkin and the saltiness of the pancetta. Enjoy!
Fantastically delicious, easy to make risotto! Mushrooms and courgettes with a touch of bacon. Friends can't get enough.
Well given food prices are rocketing I tried using barley instead of Arborio rice. It was a success, filling, healthy and still really yummy! NOTE: This is very filling and quite rich in flavour. So I sometimes serve half portions with some nice green beans or other summer Veg/green salad. It keeps in the refrigerator great in an air tight container or ziplock bag. It tastes great the next day cold or re-heated and so we take the leftovers for filling lunch at work.
If you like the natural, sweet flavour of butternut squash, you'll love this risotto! It is so creamy and full of flavour! Great as a side dish or main.
I came up with this risotto recipe for two at university and it's been a favourite of mine since I first made it. It's also easy to adapt and you can add whatever vegetables you have to hand.
