Inspired by a 1960 classic; this side dish calls for Arborio rather than conventional rice, resulting in a chewy and creamy textire. Martha Stewart is using this dish in her mother's day luncheon menu. Didn't include cooling times.Have made a few subtle changes so that it can be vegetarian, as well.
