This is a good standby meal in our house, as I always have peas and fava beans in the freezer, risotto rice in the cupboard and a few additional bits in the refrigerator. If you want to be a bit more fancy, you can use fresh peas, fava beans and other vegetables, such as green beans or asparagus. They’ll just need cooking for a few minutes in boiling water before you add to the risotto. And if you’ve ever wondered what to do with leftover risotto, below is your answer. It’s worth making this recipe just to try my Mozzarella and Risotto Primavera Cakes.
