Yellow Pepper Risotto
Yellow Pepper Risotto
(Risotto con Peperoni Gialli)
 
 
Ingredients:

3 yellow bell peppers, chopped
1 tablespoon water
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup finely diced zucchini
4 cups chicken broth
6 shallots, minced (about 1 cup)
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup Arborio rice
1/3 cup dry white wine
1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano cheese
2 tablespoons minced flat-leafed parsley leaves 

Directions:

In a skillet cook peppers in water and 2 tablespoons of butter, covered partially, over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until very soft, about 20 minutes.

Puree peppers in a food processor or blender and strain through a coarse sieve into a small bowl.

Season puree with salt and pepper.

In the cleaned skillet cook zucchini in 1 tablespoon remaining butter over moderate heat, stirring until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes, and season with salt and pepper.

In a saucepan heat broth and keep at a bare simmer.

In a heavy 2 to 3-quart saucepan cook shallot and garlic in remaining 2 tablespoons butter over moderately low heat until very soft but not browned, about 5 minutes.

Stir in rice and cook over moderate heat, stirring constantly, until edges become translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add wine and cook, stirring constantly, until wine is absorbed.

Add about 1/2 cup simmering broth and cook, stirring constantly, until broth is absorbed.

Continue adding broth, about 1/2 cup at a time, and cooking, stirring constantly and letting each addition be absorbed before adding the next, until rice is 'al dente', about 20 minutes.

Remove pan from heat and stir in pepper puree, zucchini, Parmigiano cheese, 1 tablespoon of parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.

Sprinkle risotto with remaining 1 tablespoon parsley. Serves 4.

That's it!
