Yield: 4 Servings
|\N \N||Rice (Vialone)|
|200 grams||Milanese pumpkin; cleaned|
|1 \N||Stock cube|
Time required: 30 min ca.
1) Boil 1 litre water. 2) Fry the chopped onion in half the butter.
3) Pour in the rice and the cubed pumpkin; roast slightly then pour in the boiling water a bit at a time. 4) Half-way through the cooking, add the crumbled stock cube. 5) Add cheese and butter before serving.
Notes: This recipe needs dry pumpkin (milanese pumpkin in Italian): I don't know what it's called in English, but it has a dark knobbly skin and a dark orange dry, firm flesh. Neapolitan pumpkin is too watery.
