Baked Artichoke and Pesto Risotto

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by katew

Torn out of a newspaper at some stage - I am making it right now so cannot comment on how it will taste but it seems like a great sort of meal to leave in the oven for the family if you have to go out and leave them to fend for themselves.

This was a good risotto. I did not know what tomato passata was, and didn't think we would like tomato sauce as a sub, so I used cherry tomatoes, finely diced (and more broth). I also made my own pesto, which I think makes a huge difference.
