Risotto with Mascarpone, gorgonzola and walnuts.

Make a heart shape with the walnuts, pratising for Valentine's day

It often happens in Italy that when you're having coffee with friends that someone will  mention a wonderful risotto or pasta dish that they've had. Yesterday someone described their sister-in-law's risotto with such enthusiasm that I wanted to try and make it. It got a vote of 8.5 out of 10 from my husband. Here it is:)

Risotto with mascarpone, gorgonzola and walnuts.

1 onion - finely chopped
200g risotto rice
Olive oil
1 slice of gorgonzola and mascarpone
100g chopped walnuts
White wine
Salt and pepper to taste

Gently cook the onion in the olive oil until soft but not coloured.
Add the rice and stir well.
Add some white wine and stir .
Add the stock and when the rice is almost cooked add the mascarpone, gorgonzola and chopped walnuts.
Stir and check seasoning.

Decorate your risotto with more chopped walnuts.

Just add stock, White wine and seasoning
