    Pumpkin risotto, or “risotto alla zucca,” in Italian, is made with roasted pumpkin puree or the flesh of other hard-skinned gourds like butternut or acorn squash. Our Pumpkin Risotto is a delicious blend of real Arborio rice and sweet, dehydrated pumpkin pieces. It is fully seasoned and ready to cook and serve.

    Risotto is an Italian culinary icon, combining the wholesomeness of rice with quality flavorings and spices. Gently stirring the rice while gradually adding warm stock or broth draws the starch out of the rice grains and creates the creamy consistency and al dente texture fundamental to risotto.

    The secret to excellent risotto lies with the short-grain Arborio rice, the preferred risotto rice. Arborio is a high-starch, short-grain grown in the Piedmont and Lombardy regions of Italy. Arborio rice is bred to be creamy and absorb great quantities of liquid while remaining firm and maintaining intact individual grains.
