Pumpkin Risotto

Pumpkin Risotto

I love Risotto! and kingsley is now a major lover of Risotto too! I had some to finish up before we go on our vaca in a few weeks, and I had some pumpkin, so I put the two together and lunch was done! It was very delicious too :) It ofcourse reminded me of fall, however here in NZ, summer is breaking through. It is a very filling dish and will make everyone happy. Alright let's get to the recipe
If you are wondering what a Risotto is: It is a class of Italian dishes of rice cooked in broth to a creamy consistency (Thanks Wiki!)
