Risi e Bisi

Makes 4 Servings

1 cup long-grain white rice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup minced onion
2 cups chicken broth
tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
1/2 cup diced ham
tablespoons butter
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese


Plug in rice cooker and press "Cook" button. Put oil and onion in rice cooker pan and saute 4 minutes. Add rice, chicken broth, parsley, salt and pepper. Stir and cover. Cook until machine function switches to "warm." Add peas and ham and stir. Close lid and let rest for 10 minutes. Open lid and stir in butter and parmesan. Serve immediately.

This is a deliciously creamy and tasty meal from the Venice area of Italy. You can serve it as a side dish, but my family loves it as a main dish and it is very easy to get full off of. It is super quick and easy, and making it in the rice cooker means one dish! Start to finish it usually only takes me about 30-45 minutes. Enjoy!
