Have I mentioned my pressure cooker? When we first bought it, I was scared to death. It gets ridiculously hot. Steam shoots up 3 feet into the air. It’s under pressure, meaning, it could explode at any minute. But it doesn’t. And it probably won’t. Once you get over that, it’s pretty amazing. It gets dinner (or lunch) done in a fraction of the time and energy it would normally take. How can you go wrong, really. Making a perfect and flavorful risotto is only 10 minutes away.
Today on the blog, we’re doing a tomato basil rendition. I am all over anything tomato basil this summer. Go get yourself some market fresh tomatoes (the absolute BEST) and whip this up.
