Zucchini & Thyme Risotto with Parmesan

Zucchini & Thyme Risotto with Parmesan

Arborio rice is short-grain rice used primarily in the classical preparation of risotto. Cooking the rice releases this starch, resulting in a firmer, chewier, and creamier rice compared to other kinds of rice. Arborio rice is a little less than double the cost of regular long-grain white rice. Short around for the best price and quality depending on where you live.
