Ages ago, Rossella from Ma che ti sei mangiato made a lovely melon risotto. The recipe left me wondering for a good long time. Then this week we found a lovely French melon at the market the other day. As with all market goods, they are best eaten quickly, so my Tuesday, my melon was looking a little worse for the wear. I needed to consume it quick. Rossella's recipe came to mind.
I didn't have full confidence in the combination of melon and risotto; but it turned out quite filling but at the same time light and summery. I should say my lack of confidence in the combination meant that I didn't mix the melon into the risotto but served it on top. In addition, I did add a little dry goat cheese of Greek persuasion to the mix. Goes to show you there is a reason to waste so much time reading blog recipes.
