Farroto

A whole grain alternative to the classic risotto. This uses Farro and the results are still creamy and delicious. You can use store bought sun dreid tomatoes in this recipe or for a real treat, roast your own in the oven by slicing them in half, sprinkling with a bit of salt and oil and baking at 300 for 15 minutes.  If you don't like artichokes and tomatoes go ahead and use any vegetables you like.

Farro Shopping Tip

Italian food is about simplicity and letting the ingredients shine. So make sure you get ingredients that are great quality and flavor. Farmers markets and specialty stores will have great produce and products. Just be sure to have some great olive oil.

Farro Cooking Tip

Unlike other highly regarded cuisines, Italian cooking is usually simple to make with many dishes having only 4 to 8 ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.
