Creamy Zucchini Risotto

Risotto, a nice creamy Northern Italian dish made form a starchy grain like rice. I enjoy the creaminess and the versatility is great, it can go as a side or add to it and maybe even a main dish. The health benefits of risotto if just on its own comes from the rice only so in my opinion it’s not the healthiest when left on its own, plus the butter and other ingredients can make this dish vary on the health benefits. With that thought aside I wanted to try a new type I never had before.

I got “RightRice Creamy Parmesan style” risotto, which is made from vegetables, so the protein and fiber is higher in this risotto, and it has a lot fewer net carbs. I decided to add my own twist and make it more of a small meal instead of a side.

I have made risotto before, and it took a while plus adding in liquid as it cooked so when I read the instructions and it said total time was 12 minutes, I was excited.

(A little FYI, it took mine a bit longer than the package said but still a dinner in less than 30 minutes is pretty great.)
