"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Basil Risotto
Basil Risotto
(Risotto con Basilico)

2 and 1/2 cups packed fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup packed fresh sage leaves
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (about 1 and 1/2 ounces)
5 and 1/2 cups chicken broth (44 fluid ounces)
2 medium onions
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 and 1/2 cups Arborio rice (about 10 and 1/2 ounces)
1/2 cup dry white wine 

In a food processor mince basil and sage with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

In a saucepan bring broth to a simmer and keep at a bare simmer.

Finely chop onions.

In a 4 to 5-quart heavy kettle cook onions in 1/4 cup olive oil, covered, over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until soft but not browned, about 10 minutes.

Add rice and cook, uncovered, over low heat, stirring, 10 minutes.

Increase heat to moderate and add wine.

Cook mixture, stirring constantly, until wine is absorbed.

Stir in 1 cup simmering broth and cook at a strong simmer, stirring constantly, until broth is absorbed.

Continue adding broth, about 1/2 cup at a time, and cooking mixture at a strong simmer, stirring constantly and letting each addition be absorbed before adding the next, until rice is tender and creamy-looking but still 'al dente', about 18 minutes total. (There may be broth left over.)

Remove kettle from heat and stir in herb mixture, remaining tablespoon olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste.

Serve risotto immediately. Serves 6 as a first course or 4 as a main course.
