So if you and in the mood for a yummy ham dinner but have little time give this recipe a try. I promise you will love it!!!
Risotto with Peas and Prosciutto
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup Arborio rice (short gain)
4 to 6 cups hot chicken broth*
1 cup frozen or fresh green peas
1/2 cup roughly chopped prosciutto
Heat chicken broth to a gentle boil in a small pan.
In another pan (medium sized) saute the chopped onion in olive oil over medium heat, until the onion is softened.
Add rice and saute for about 2 minutes until all the grains are coated.
Add hot broth, 1 cup at a time, stirring after each addition until the broth is adsorbed; about 20 to 25 minutes. The risotto should be creamy; add more liquid if a creamier texture is desired.
Stir in the peas and prosciutto until the peas are heated all the way. Serve immediately and enjoy!
*If you or someone you are cooking for is on a gluten-free diet be careful which chicken broth you use. I know that it is hard to believe but some chicken broths have gluten added to them. Weird, right!?!*
