Risotto Help Needed
  Re: (...)
I've made the risotto with salami and peas, I think there may also be tomatoes in it from one of the Cuisine at home Issues. I bought all the ingredients to the best of my memory and spent almost an hour last night looking for the recipe. I ended up winging it but it's driving me crazy..
Does anyone know what issue the recipe is published in or could you resend the recipe???

Risotto Confetti
(Cuisine at home, October 2003, Issue 41, p. 29)

Makes: 8 Cups Total Time: 35 Minutes Rating: Intermediate

For the Quick Stock—
5 cans (14 oz. each) low-sodium chicken broth, chilled, with fat skimmed off
3 medium onions, unpeeled, coarsely chopped
1 large stalk celery with leaves, coarsely chopped
1/2 large carrot, coarsely chopped
2 sprigs flat-leaf parsley
1 large clove garlic, crushed
1/4 t. dried basil

For the Risotto Confetti—
Saute in 1 T. Unsalted Butter:
4 oz. hard salami, cut into 1/4"-wide strips

6–7 cups Quick Stock

Melt, then Add:
1 T. unsalted butter
1 cup onion, minced

Stir in:
2 cups imported Arborio rice

1/3 cup dry white wine

Stir in Stock. Off Heat, Finish with:
10 oz. frozen peas
1 T. unsalted butter
1 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated
Salt and crushed red pepper flakes to taste
Sauteed salami
1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
2 T. minced flat-leaf parsley

Combine all ingredients for stock and bring to a boil in a large saucepan. Lower heat so the broth bubbles slowly; cover tightly and cook 30 minutes. Strain the stock.

Saute salami for risotto confetti in butter in a heavy 5–6 quart pan. Transfer to a plate, reserving drippings in the pan. Using the pan the salami was sauteed in, add just 1 T. butter to saute the onion.

Heat stock to a gentle simmer.

Melt 1 T. butter over medium heat, for risotto, in the pan you used to saute the salami. Add onion; cook until clear but not brown.

Stir in rice and saute until rice edges become transparent, about 3 minutes.

Add wine, stirring until absorbed, less than 1 minute.

Stir in the heated stock 1 cup at a time. Each cup must be absorbed before the next is added. Add frozen peas with final 1/2 cup of stock.

Off heat, stir in butter, cheese, and seasonings. Then add the salami,tomatoes, and parsley, stirring gently.
