Pancetta, Baby Squash and Leek Risotto

Oh how I love risotto its easy to make and forces you to stop what your doing day dream and stir!, I found some lovely baby squash combined with leeks and pancetta and voila another great risotto is born.

  • 3 slices of pancetta diced
  • 2 small leeks thinly sliced
  • two cups of vegetable stock
  • 4 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 5 small baby squash sliced
  • 1-2 cups of water
  • one cup of Arborio Rice
  • 5 small mushrooms sliced

  1. saute the onion and garlic in olive oil
  2. then add the pancetta, baby squash, mushrooms and leek for 3 minutes
  3. add rice and the stock and stir keep stirring the rice as the stock evaporates then add another cup, stir then add the water as needed this takes about 30-45 min
I am going to start a new series of interviewing fellow bloggers, folks on the Chow and Chatter Facebook page and Twitter for fun, its just great to spotlight all you lovely folks :-)
