Creamy Tomato Risotto

Creamy Tomato Risotto. The end. Seriously though I made this thinking it was going to be pretty good, maybe a throw in in my risotto collection. It was unexpectedly one of the best risottos I’ve ever had. This creamy and indulgent risotto celebrates the deep rich flavor of tomatoes. With notes of nutty Parmesan and rich heavy cream its hard to comprehend how something so delicious could be made up of mostly pantry ingredients. Like my other risotto recipes, this…

Classic Italian Meatballs

Now these are meatballs. I’m not talking Swedish meatballs, or Greek meatballs (although that recipe can be found HERE). I am talking 80/20 100% beef, melt in your mouth, classic Italian meatballs. You know the type you want to tower on a plate of spaghetti or stuff into a soft hoagie. Warning, if you stumbled upon this recipe hoping this was another one of my 20-30-minute dishes, it’s not. With that said this recipe in no way requires a ton of…

Kale and Pancetta Risotto

Hello, it’s me again trying to convince you to make risotto at home. Truth is, this kale and pancetta risotto recipe was supposed to be saved for Fall.

Crispy fatty pancetta, check. Salty parmesan cheese, check. Peppery arugula, check. Sounds like a good pasta dish to me. Let’s not be confused this is not cacio e pepe or carbonara, instead this parmesan pancetta pasta combines elements from both. This parmesan pancetta pasta dish is light despite being cooked in pancetta fat and parmesan. Salty and nutty from the freshly grated parmesan cheese. With only 6 ingredients and made in under 30 minutes, this easy pasta dish packs a…
