Recipe: Risotto al Radicchio

Posted on

Chef-Owner Antonio Varia invites you to bring a Buona Tavola favorite to your home. Every so often Antonio will share one of his favorite recipes with you on our web site. The ingredients are found in most supermarkets (or grown fresh locally) and the preparation is quite simple.

Risotto al Radicchio

2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 Spanish onion
15 oz. uncooked Arborio rice
12 oz. dry white wine
3 oz. sweet butter
5 cups chicken broth
4 oz. Parmesan cheese
2 small heads radicchip

Chop onion, saute in pan with olive oil until golden. Add uncooked rice and quickly mix with onion, then add wine. Let wine evaporate then add broth one cup at a time, stirring occasionally. Finally, add butter, Parmesan cheese, and finely chopped radicchio. Mix well with love. Let sit for 5 minutes and serve. Serves about 6 as a side dish.

Bon appetito!
