I’m finally back with a French Fridays with Dorie post! It feels good to be here. I actually have two more FFWD recipes to tell you about, but I will get to those another day. If I wait until I have time for a “3 recipe” post, then it may never happen!
This week’s recipe was called Dressy Pasta “Risotto”. While the technique was vaguely risotto-like, it would have been better to call this “Fancy Mac & Cheese”. The pasta is cooked in broth until the broth has mostly evaporated, then heavy cream, Parmesan, and mascarpone are mixed in. This dish is very rich!
I served this “risotto” for a New Year’s Eve dinner with chicken roasted “lazy style” and roasted Brussels sprouts. We all thought the pasta was delicious (especially my daughter, whose favorite meal is Mac & Cheese). What a lovely way to end the year!
