Risotto is joyous, not only by eating it, making it is oddly enough comforting. It gives me great pleasure standing at the stove stirring. So I ran with it...
The first risotto I made was with broccoli rabe, chick peas and sausage. This is one of my favorites. I love sausage and I love broccoli rabe so it is a match made in heaven or in our kitchen. I even like to eat it for breakfast the next day.
I hope that it makes her feel better.
Finally, I made a dessert rice. This is the second time that I am making apple risotto, it still needs to be tweaked, but I think that I am on the right track. I sauteed the apples in butter, and added a little cinnamon and salt. I used Simply Apple Juice. I also used a bit of half & half, while I think it was just a bit too sweet it still was truly good.
