The secret to a perfect risotto is to ensure you constantly stir the rice to keep it from sticking as it absorbs all of the flavour. This recipe requires a little bit of patience but doesn't take long to make and is absolutely worth your undivided attention!
This cheesy courgette risotto is a classic Italian dish that is great for vegetarians or those who want to cut down on the amount of meat they eat. It's also a great way to use up any leftover courgettes (zucchini!).
The risotto rice takes on the flavour of the courgettes, vegetable stock and dry white wine beautifully and is then mixed with gooey mozzarella and salty parmesan cheese to give it that gorgeous, sticky consistency.
This recipe works beautifully as an evening summer meal or could also be served in smaller portions as an appetiser.
