How to make it
- In a large dutch oven melt 2T of the butter with the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and the pancetta and cook until the onion is lightly browned, do not let burn.
- Add the cabbage and turn the heat down to medium low. Turn a few times and cover. Cook until the cabbage becomes "colored a rich nut brown" stirring every few minutes to prevent burning.
- Add the rice to the pot, turn the heat back up to medium and stir quickly, start adding ladlefuls of broth one at a time as they get absorbed. Stir continuously. Continue doing this until the rice is soft but still a little al dente.
- Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining butter, parmesan and season to taste.

Risotto is one of my favorite things to prepare.
I like using the pancetta,it seems to caramelize with the onions in this dish and give the Risotto a richness that makes a wonderful compliment to the cabbage.
