EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If you use regular long-grain white rice instead of the Arborio rice, the finished dish will be less creamy with more separate, distinct rice grains. The reason: regular white rice doesn't contain as much starch as Arborio rice does.

Serve this meaty risotto with a Caesar salad and French bread for an easy weeknight meal.
