Roasted Tomato and Bacon Risotto

After having a very lazy day, I decided to actually put some effort into something and made risotto for dinner. It’s a recipe loosely based on one I found on the internet, but I've changed the quantities and added a few extra ingredients.

It’s a really easy recipe to cook. To start with fry some bacon and onions and melt some butter. This all goes in together (I use a wok to cook it in). Then add the risotto and fry it until it’s slightly translucent. Next add a glass of wine, and then gradually the chicken stock. The packets say to use 450ml of stock but I always end up using double this. Meanwhile, roast some tomatoes (cover with oil/salt/pepper to prep) in the oven. Once all the stock is soaked up, add the secret ingredients… a few spoonfuls of mascarpone cheese and some chopped basil. Add the roasted tomatoes on top and you’re done.

A simple, easy, and very yummy meal.
