I keep forgetting to tell y'all about this: I discovered some while back that if you have, say, two cups of leftover Riso alla Pitoca and a quart or so of chicken stock, you can have a pretty damned amazing chicken and rice soup in a matter of moments. Who knew?
I'm sure it would work just as well with the Risotto di Zucca, or with any risotto, I suppose.
So there's your first tip of the year, and it's still January! Hope I can get some more out for you soon. It's been way too long, hasn't it?
