Pumpkin risotto with stracchino cheese and colatura di alici

10 minutes to prepare Serves 4



Cold weather = Risotto

Today’s recipe is a delicious and almost sinful risotto: pumpkin and Stracchino cheese Risotto.

I love cheese and Stracchino is an Italian mild soft cheese that I adore.
And I love pumpkin. I also love risotto, so this recipe has all my favourite ingredients!

Do not be intimidated by making risotto. It is pretty easy. As long as you follow the instructions, you will be able to make risotto like a pro in no time.
Try this version with Stracchino cheese and colatura di alici, for some typical Italian flavor, I am sure you’ll love it!

50 g Parmesan cheese
