shira and i apparently only make risotto together. given that it requires one to stand and stir the pot for almost an hour, it's nice to have someone in the kitchen.
having both read the december 2010 bon appetit magazine, we decided on its "meatless main dish" of risotto with butternut squash, leeks, and basil. however, leeks were not to be found and we both had leftover winter squash from the csa. so, it was really winter squash risotto with scallions and basil. we added salt and pepper but mostly followed the recipe. i have no idea why it looks like scrambled eggs in the photo.
delish. especially with some fancy brother thelonious belgian abbey ale.
