Risotto Alla Gorgonzola E Pancetta
Why I Love This Recipe
Just another risotto recipe, sprung from a lack of ingredients and sheer laziness regarding a trip to the market for Beef broth, a Bell Pepper and some Heavy Cream.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 1/2 cup Arborio rice
3 - 4 oz Pancetta
4 oz Gorgonzola, crumbled and divided
1 scallion chopped white and green part
3 – 4 cups Chicken Stock
salt and green pepper to taste
1 TB olive oil
1 TB unsalted butter
Add 1 TB Olive oil to a saucepan set over medium heat, sauté until almost crispy.
Add the scallions and sweat for a few minutes – until wilted and transparent, but not brown.
Add the rice, together with a pinch of salt and a grind or two of black pepper.
Cook Stirring constantly over medium heat for about 4 minutes.
Add the first ladle of broth and cook; stirring until broth is absorbed.
Continue in this manner until the rice is al dente.
Add half of the gorgonzola and the TB of Butter to the pot; stir until melted
Cover and let rest for 3 minutes.
Serve with remaining Gorgonzola sprinkled over the top.
