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.

Crunchy Potatoes

A classic Spanish bar snack, patatas bravas are fried twice: The first fry is meant to rid the potatoes of most of their moisture so they'll form a crisp crust when fried the second time.

Greek Pastitsio

what’s with using penne, or ziti? In my understanding, a pastitsio should hold together more or less- like a lasagna. If we’re using short noodles, it’s just a great mess of a pasta bake

Dried and salted fish doesn’t sound like something to get too excited about. But if you ask an Italian about baccalà, or salted cod, you’ll see their eyes light up.

Ugly Tomatoes with Quinoa

Harvest '18 is still going and only getting stronger! With all these extra tomatoes lying around the kitchen, we just have to eat 'em up (especially the ones that don't make it to the jars).
