One serving is never enough of Michele Romano's incredible Recipe for Risotto! A very tasty Italian side dish, creamy mushroom, peas and Parmigiano Risotto will accompany any kind of meat entree you may be preparing.
Steak, chicken, beef, pork or fish, my risotto recipe will be sure to add the fresh, delectable side dish you are looking for! One thing I love about this recipe, besides the creamy taste, is that Risotto is quick and easy to make. The rice, mushroom and pea combination supplies the carbs and vegetables that are guaranteed to make your meat dish explode with flavor. Add an Italian salad on the side, such as Roasted Garlic Caesar Salad or my juicy Italian Tomato Salad you will then have a full square meal bursting with a zest that your family or guests will love.

Health Benefits: Olive Oil. Mediterranean Diet studies have long associated olive oil consumption with decreased risk of heart disease. Recent group of studies have shown us a fascinating explanation of olive oil's cardioprotective effect. One of the key polyphenols in olive oil—hydroxytyrosol (HT), protects the cells that line our blood vessels from being damaged by overly reactive oxygen molecules. Hydroxytyrosol helps protect the blood vessel cells by triggering changes at a genetic level. In other words, olive oil supports our blood vessels not only by providing antioxidants like like vitamin E and beta-carotene. Olive oil also provides our blood vessels with unique molecules that actually work at a genetic level to help the cellular walls of the blood vessels stay strong.
