Creamy Pancetta Rice

READY IN: 45mins
Top Review by mersaydees

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.
