The other night I was all out of ideas for new dishes and asked the hubs if there was anything he'd like me to learn how to cook. We watch alot of cooking shows together so he said, "Risotto". They are always making Risotto on those shows and we even googled it once cause we weren't sure what it was. Yes... me... the girl with a cooking blog... didn't know what risotto was. Hey, I'm just an ordinary gal trying to cook without acids! Lol! Anyways, I found this recipe that was really simple and made it with my newly discovered Pork Loin recipe that I'm obsessed with... OMG, best all around meal ever!!!!
3 Tablespoons Butter
1-½ cup fancy rice (Arborio or Orzo)
3 cups Chicken Or Vegetable Stock
6 Tablespoons Fresh Chopped Basil
1 cup Parmesan Cheese (I used 2/3 Cup cause that's all I had...still good!)
½ teaspoons Salt
¼ teaspoons Pepper
Melt the butter over medium heat. Add the rice and saute for a few minutes, until the orzo starts to get golden
brown. Add the broth and cover and simmer for 20 minutes, until all the
broth has been absorbed. Remove from the heat, add the basil and
Parmesan and salt and pepper to taste.
