Italian Risotto Napoletana Recipe

Italian risotto napoletana recipe


  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan.  Add the onions and fry until they begin to soften.
  2. Add the rice and fry until it has absorbed the oil. Add the tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, stock cube and water. Bring to the boil and then turn down to simmer for 15 minutes. Stir occasionally the make sure the mixture is not sticking to the bottom of the pan. Add a little more water if your rice doesn’t cook thoroughly. You should still have a creamy consistency.  Season to taste.
  3. Stir in the olives, basil, salami and parmesan just before serving.
