Risotto is one of those simple, hearty, low fat glorious dishes. It is essentially arborio rice, stock, parmesan and whatever ingredients you wish to include.
For Halloween or any harvest meal, try squash which is in season and have that lovely orange color. Roasting the squash first imparts great flavour. Unfortunately risotto does not get better the next day. In fact you end up with a gluey mess. But don’t despair, you can form leftover risotto into patties or balls, roll in crumbs and pan fry. Delicious.
