How to make it

  • Directions:
  • In a skillet cook peppers in water and 2 tablespoons of butter, covered partially, over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until very soft, about 20 minutes.
  • Puree peppers in a food processor or blender and strain through a coarse sieve into a small bowl.
  • Season puree with salt and pepper.
  • In the cleaned skillet cook zucchini in 1 tablespoon remaining butter over moderate heat, stirring until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes, and season with salt and pepper.
  • In a saucepan heat broth and keep at a bare simmer.
  • In a heavy 2 to 3-quart saucepan cook shallot and garlic in remaining 2 tablespoons butter over moderately low heat until very soft but not browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in rice and cook over moderate heat, stirring constantly, until edges become translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add wine and cook, stirring constantly, until wine is absorbed.
  • Add about 1/2 cup simmering broth and cook, stirring constantly, until broth is absorbed.
  • Continue adding broth, about 1/2 cup at a time, and cooking, stirring constantly and letting each addition be absorbed before adding the next, until rice is 'al dente', about 20 minutes.
  • Remove pan from heat and stir in pepper puree, zucchini, Parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon of parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Sprinkle risotto with remaining 1 tablespoon parsley. Serves 4.

    I frequently make rissoto your recipe directions are perfect and the flavors are terrific. Those that know me well say I am the king of peppers and I try to grow and include them all I can. So this is a perfect recipe for me.
    Great big smile :) and five forks from me.
