Alessi Risotto With Butternut Squash - 8 Oz
Risotto with Butternut Squash and Italian Arborio Rice
Premium. Italy is Europe's largest producer of rice. The wetlands and cool temperatures of the Lombardi region harbor the ideal conditions for lush rice fields. Resourceful Italians combined rice with many other items common to their area and developed a dish they lay to claim to. It is known as risotto. Rich, creamy risotto is one of Northern Italy's gastronomic delights. The key ingredient in authentic risotto is the short, thick grained rice known as Arborio. This rice is the perfect grain for risotto because its texture and cooking properties allow it to retain firmness throughout preparation. Risotto should always be prepared al dente which means tender yet firm to the bite. Alessi Risotto con Zucca Violina (butternut squash) is a savory, delectable comfort food. The naturally sweet, violin shaped butternut squash pairs well with the texture and the taste of al dente Arborio rice. The unique blend of flavors result in creamy deliciousness. This dish is a wonderful accompaniment to most grilled meats, duck and shrimp. Try our other authentic risottos and Buon Appetito! www.alessifoods.com.
