Jarred Marinara Sauce Makes Risotto Easy
Usually jarred marinara sauce is reserved for those quick and easy spaghetti recipes when you have no time and just want to get dinner on the table. But, if you do have a little extra time, add the sauce to some arborio rice and have a hearty risotto for dinner instead.
As I posted last week, I like to use jarred marinara sauces sometimes; they are quick and easy and don't need to be reserved for spaghetti. Last week, I poured it over polenta. Today, I'm using it as the base for a risotto dish.
I like risotto almost as much as I like polenta, but what I don't like about it is the amount of time it takes to make. Continuously having to add and stir the wine and chicken stock until all the liquid is absorbed can take more than an hour sometimes; not to mention that standing over a hot stove stirring can make it seem like your arm's gonna fall off at any moment. However, this recipe from Parents Magazine makes cooking risotto as easy as can be. Instead of adding and stirring and adding and stirring, you just add and stir once and then throw everything in the oven. It couldn't be simpler. Better yet, the end result tastes delicious.
