Arborio is a short grain rice from the Po River valley in northern Italy and is used in risotto. Risotto is a northern Italian classic dish in which the rice is gently cooked with small amounts of liquid added a little at a time. It should end with a creamy consistency, but be firm to the bite. This dish displays a bright, summery tomato color and flavor, accented with delicate sweet green peas. Serve as an entrée with a simple green salad.
