Quick, Simple and Comforting

Risotto1

When I got home today and was talking to My Husband about our dinner options I mentioned that I did happen to have the ingredients necessary to make risotto. I've made the Spinach and Pancetta Risotto several times, but it has been a little while since I last made it. It truly is a favorite dish of ours and so quick and easy.

Now, if you have only recently begun reading my blog, you may not be aware that I have this magical secret to making incredibly creamy risotto in under 10 minutes. I don't even have to stir it constantly to achieve that comforting creamy texture. Now, I'll share that secret with you, but you must promise never to tell another soul, ok? Just kidding! I make it in my amazing pressure cooker! Yep, the pressure cooker has come back and is now cool to use again! The new one's are fantastic and you don't have to worry about them exploding and sending food flying across the room. Yes, I have been told stories of this happening with the old style cookers.

So, with a bit of chill back in the air today, something warm and comforting was in order. Dinner was ready in a snap. If you are able to get your hands on a pressure cooker, I highly recommend getting one! I'd also suggest picking up a copy of Pressure Cooking for Everyone because it is a great cookbook to use when you are just learning about using a pressure cooker.
