This is different! :) The salty pancetta and pistachio are nicely balanced with sweetness from the red onion and cranberries, and the half-and-half adds wonderful undertones of richness. This is probably not something I'd place in my regular rotation; it's too special and more like a holiday treat for my family. Thanks, Elmotoo! Made for Aussie NZ Recipe Swap #23.

This was really interesting. I loved the pancetta and onions with the rice but found the cranberries a bit odd but enjoyable and I liked the creaminess - I used Trader Joe's frozen brown rice. Surprisingly my DH who often doesn't like hard or chewy mixed with soft textures, really liked this. I kept thinking it needed some other type of seasoning but I'm not sure what. I will for sure make this again and maybe play with it a little just for fun! I think maybe I'll try fresh cranberries in place of the dried. Thanks for sharing Bethie!
