I'm not feeling very well today, and my gathering is cancelled.. but I'm still going to post the dish I was supposed to cook..
"A delicately ~ scented dish"
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 small onion, diced
3/4 cup arborio rice
2 cups hot chicken stock
salt & pepper to taste
1 pound mushrooms, diced
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 large ripe tomato, diced
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/8 cup chopped basil
1 tablespoon fresh rosemany, minced
1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
Melt the butter in a large skillet. Saute the onion until tender. Add rice, and cook it for 1 minute. Stir constantly.
Add chicken stock, salt & pepper. Cook, covered until rice is tender on the outside and chewy inside.
While rice is cooking, saute mushrooms in olive oil. When rice is done, fold in the mushrooms, tomatoes, cream, basil, rosemary & cheese.
