It’s a NEWyear and you know what that means! HEALTHY EATING!!! That why I love this Marsala Risotto with Herbed Shrimp. I love the creamy texture of the risotto and all the flavor the herbs gave the shrimp. This lightened up Italian dish is healthy and delicious!
Risotto is made with Arborio rice. Arborio rice is a Italian short grain rice. The high starch content makes this rice perfect for risotto.
This was my first attempt at making risotto and I must say it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. The way to make risotto creamy is by only adding a half a cup of broth at a time, stirring until all the liquid is absorbed, adding another half cup and repeating until the rice is cooked through and creamy.
