"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

Risotto with Peas and Prosciutto
Risotto with Peas and Prosciutto
(Risotto con Piselli e Prosciutto)
 
 
Ingredients:

5 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter
1 and 1/2 cups Arborio rice (12 ounces)
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 cup frozen baby peas, thawed
2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-wide strips
1/2 teaspoon finely grated fresh lemon zest
1 cup finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (2 ounces)
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley 
 
Directions:
 
Bring broth to a simmer in a saucepan and keep at a bare simmer, covered.

Cook onion in 2 tablespoons butter in a 3 to 4-quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3 to 4 minutes.

Add rice and cook, stirring, 1 minute.

Add wine and simmer, stirring, until absorbed.

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

Continue simmering risotto and adding broth, about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly and letting each addition become absorbed before adding next, until rice is just tender and creamy but still 'al dente', 18 to 20 minutes (there will be leftover broth).

Stir in peas, prosciutto, zest, 2/3 cup cheese, parsley, remaining 2 tablespoons butter, and salt and pepper to taste.

If necessary, thin risotto with some of remaining broth.

Serve immediately, with remaining 1/3 cup cheese. Makes 4 main-course or 6 to 8 side-dish servings.
