The word “primavera” comes from an Italian word meaning “in the style of springtime.”
And I am beyond ready for springtime. The high today is 71 and makes this dinner even more appropriate.
Don’t be afraid of risotto! It just takes a little time and patience.
The key is to have the liquid that you’re mixing into the rice simmering the entire time. In this case, vegetable broth.
Creamy rice from the addition of cream cheese.
Peas bursting with flavor and freshness.
Rich, deep flavor from garlic and onion.
A little sweetness from the wine.
Sharp, cheesy Parmesan.
Risotto is so comforting yet so light.
The perfect way to style dinner in the springtime.
