  • 1 lvegetable broth
  • 350 grice (Arborio or Carnaroli type)
  • 150 gItalian scamorza cheese (smoked)
  • 100 gshaved Parmesan cheese
  • 2 spoonsextra virgin olive oil
  • 1white onion
  • 1/2 glassItalian Moscato wine
  • 1/2red cabbage
  • q.s.salt


  1. – prepare the vegetable stock in a separate pan;

    – when the vegetable stock is ready, maintain its temperature high by keeping the pan on the stove on a low fire;

    – chop the onion and put it in a large saucepan together with a pinch of salt and 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil;

    – slice and shred red cabbage very finely and add transfer it onto the onion;

    – put the saucepan on the stove on medium heat;

    – as soon as the oil starts frying, low the heat to the minimum, cover the saucepan with a lid and cook till onion soften in its own liquid;

    – when the onion is cooked, add the rice and mix well for a few seconds till it toasts lightly;

    – pour the Moscato and stir well;

    – as soon as most of the wine has evaporated, scoop up and pour the broth from its pot with a ladle till you cover the rice;

    – stir well and keep on watching the rice closely: as soon as most of the evaporates, pour in some more hot vegetable stock;

    – repeat the above step till the rice cooks (it should take around 15-20 minutes). Do not add too much stock at one go whenever you top up the risotto, because when the rice finally cooks there must not be too much liquid in the pan;

    – when the rice is cooked, remove the pan form the stove and add the cheese (cheese should be cut in very small cubes before adding it to the risotto);

    – mix well till the cheese melts completely;

    – serve topped with shaved Parmesan cheese
