PREPARATION

Pour the stock into a pan and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer.

Meanwhile, melt half the butter in another pan. Add the onion and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until it is softened. Add the rice and cook, stirring, until all the grains are coasted with melted butter.

Add the wine and cook for 5 minutes, or until the alcohol has evaporated. Add a ladleful of the hot stock to the rice and cook, stirring, until it has been absorbed. Continue adding the stock, a ladleful at a time, and stirring until each addition has been absorbed. This will take about 20 minutes.

10 minutes before the end of cooking time, add the Strawberry Marinara to the risotto and mix. When it is almost ready, gently stir in the cream and season with salt and pepper. Serve garnished with fresh sliced strawberries.

Cheesy Tomato Gnocchi

Gnocchi is a great addition to soups and stews and even meaty casseroles, or anywhere you might use potatoes. They’re even great sautéed with fresh herbs like sage and thyme then sprinkled with Parmigiano Reggiano just before serving.

Bucatini alla Reggina: Calabrian Style

It’s not the Queen we’re talking about here. It’s a double ‘g’ and ‘reggina’ actually refers to Reggio Calabria, that section of the Calabrian peninsula that looks straight across the narrow strip of sea known as the Strait of Messina to Sicily.

Panzanella Salad

The best time of year is now! So many UGLY tomatoes are causing us to make so many delicious salads, still! As a small company who hustles weekly at Union Square Greenmarket and does in-store demonstrations, we always have quite a bit of bread on hand.
