Directions

  1. Adjust oven rack to middle position, and heat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Heat oil or butter in a heavy-bottom Dutch oven or large ovenproof saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and prosciutto or ham; saute until tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in rice (can be removed from heat and covered for up to 2 hours in advance), then add wine, and simmer until the liquid has almost evaporated. Turn off heat. Add broth and water. Cover the pot with a sheet of heavy-duty foil, pressing the foil down so it's concave and rests on the broth. Place a lid over the pot to ensure an even tighter seal.
  4. Set pot in oven; cook for 25 minutes. Remove from oven. Use a potholder to remove lid and foil. Remembering that the handles are hot, set pot on low heat.
  5. Stir mixture, adding water if necessary, until rice is cooked and a little chewy at the center, the liquid is creamy, and the flavors of the new ingredients have melded in, about 5 minutes. Stir in 1 cup of Parmesan cheese, peas and/or parsley. Adjust seasonings, including salt and pepper, to taste.
  6. Spoon into shallow soup plates, sprinkling each serving with shaved Parmesan.

Good consistancy. We added prawns and squash. Very bland overall. Wouldn't make again without changes.

I don't have a dutch oven, I actually used my cast iron skillet to make this dish. I used hickory smoke bacon in place of the prosciutto and I used a cup of frozen peas/carrots mixed because tha...

Easy and incredibly delicious! (I substituted sharp cheddar cheese for Parmesan because that's what I had. It was a great, simple meal.)
