this is my basic risotto recipe. I use it as a base for most of my risotto dishes. —sweet enough
What You'll Need
simmering chicken broth
dry white wine
freshly grated parmigiana reggiano
salt and pepper to taste
melt butter in olive oil in a medium size pan. finely chop onion, garlic and prosciutto and saute in olive oil and butter over medium heat until onion is translucent, about five minutes.
add arborio rice and stir over medium heat for a few minutes so that each grain gets coated with the oil and butter mixture. add salt and pepper.
add one cup of the chicken broth and stir often until it is absorbed. as broth is absorbed, add another cup. after about 20 minutes, add the white wine and another cup of broth. add the grated cheese and a 1/2 cup of broth. stir until cheese is melted and correct seasoning. serve immediately.
