Feeds: 4 People


  • 100g of Dried Porcini Mushrooms

  • 200g of Pancetta

  • 1 Brown Onion

  • 2 Garlic Cloves

  • Bertolli Spread

  • 400g of Risotto Rice

  • 200g of Parmesan

  • Handful of Parsley

  • Salt

  • Pepper


  1. Place your porcini mushrooms in a jug along with 400ml of hot water.

  2. Chop up your pancetta and add it to a frying pan. Cook on a low heat to let the fat render out. Chop up your onion. Once the pancetta is crispy, add the onion. Chop up your garlic and add to the pan with a big knob of Bertolli.

  3. Risotto time. Add the risotto rice, pouring the stock in, bit by bit, beating the rice as you go for added creaminess.

  4. Once the rice is cooked through, add the porcini mushrooms, Parmesan and a knob of Bertolli and give it a good stir. Chop up your parsley and add to the pan followed by salt and pepper. Fold everything together and tuck in.
