Since pumpkin is the "Ingredient of the Month", I thought I would contribute a few pumpkin recipes. If you like risotto, and are looking for something a bit different, you should give this one a try. I think the nutmeg and gorgonzola cheese are an interesting combination with the pumpkin. The risotto can be served as a side dish or main course.
