The haunting edge of pureed arugula gives creamy risotto a startling depth and intensity and marbles its whiteness with deep green as well. If your arugula seems particularly bitter, reserve a bit and taste the rice before you add the final tablespoons. You may not need to add them. Nonna Lucia Rossi Pavanello, provider of many simple and arrestingly delicious recipes, triumphs again.
