Our homestyle Bolognese sauce melts into creamy arborio rice in this divinely simple Italian favorite. If you’ve never tried making risotto at home, this is the recipe to start with. Hearty and satisfying as a stand-alone meal, but even better with a simple green salad.
4 cups Arborio rice
62 oz. beef stock
24 oz. jar Rao’s Homemade® Bolognese Sauce
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped parsley and fresh basil for garnish
1 tbsp Olive Oil
Add the olive oil to a large size pot over medium-low heat and pour in the rice. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes to lightly toast the Arborio rice.
Stir the rice constantly while adding in 8 ounces of beef stock at a time until the liquid is absorbed. Repeat the process until the risotto is al dente or slightly crunchy, about 30 minutes.
Fold in the Rao’s Homemade® Bolognese Sauce and Parmesan cheese until completely mixed in.
Cook over low heat for 5 minutes while continuing to stir.
Serve the Risotto Bolognese with optional chopped parsley and basil garnishes.
