    Servings 4, Preparation time 10 mins, Cooking time 14/15 mins

    • 400 g rice Arborio or Carnaroli
    • 2 and a half glasses of full-bodied red wine (Barolo)
    • 2 small onion (1 for the broth, 1 for the rice)
    • Vegetable broth to taste (onion, carrot, celery and a bay leaf if you have) or use vegetable stock cube
    • 30 g. of grated Parmesan cheese
    • a knob of cold butter to whisk
    • extra virgin olive oil (EVO)
    • salt and black ground pepper to taste
    Method



    Prepare the vegetable broth as you prefer (using vegetables or using a stock cube).

    Cut finely the onion for the rice.

    In a pot, add some tablespoons of EVOO with the chopped onion and, as soon as it becomes clear, pour the rice and mix it for a few minutes.

    Now pour the glasses of wine in the pot and let it absorb. Add a handful of grated parmesan.

    Then add a pinch of salt and cook together with a ladle of warm broth at a time until the broth is completely absorbed.
    Stir continuously the rice to avoid it sticking to the pot.

    Turn off the flame. Season with a sprinkled of black ground pepper, a bit of grated Parmesan and a knob of cold butter, and stir. Leave for a few minutes before serving.

    I have eaten it out several times in Milano, however, I have never prepared it at home .. It is on my list to do´s ..

    I would plate it with a "mold " on a large White porcelain verses in a bowl ..

    I would like to prepare this dish for some holidays we have coming up in September as an entrée / main course ..

    Truly gorgeous !
