- 4 cups low-sodium vegetable stock, divided
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 large shallot, minced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup arborio rice
- 1 cup ZENB Sweet Carrot and Tomato Marinara Pasta Sauce
- 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1/4 cup basil leaves, torn
- 2 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese pearls
- 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
Heat stock in medium sauce pan on medium-high heat until simmering; keep warm.2.
Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add shallots; cook 2-3 minutes until softened. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add rice to skillet. Cook, stirring constantly, 2-3 minutes or until translucent. Stir in ZENB Sauce and 2 cups warmed stock.3.
Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook 5-8 minutes or until liquid is completely absorbed. Repeat with remaining stock. Cook 12-15 minutes, stirring frequently, until rice is fully cooked and most liquid is absorbed.
Stir in Parmesan cheese; remove pan from heat. Top each serving with cherry tomatoes, basil, mozzarella and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
Risotto can be made up to 1 hour ahead. Remove the skillet from the heat after the last addition of stock. When ready to serve, continue cooking while stirring frequently until rice is done.
Risotto cooked to the proper consistency should be thick, but still run off of a plate. Add additional stock as needed.
