      So good and filling! And talk about easy. However I didn't have any dry white wine and substituted a 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar which went very well. Can't wait to make this again.

      Costa Rica has some awesome pumpkins, I don't even know the names of them. But, they are sooooo good! I found this recipe while searching for something savory to make with a pumpkin I just picked up at the Feria (farmers market). Y.U.M.M.Y.!!! The pumpkin was a great complement to the salty ham - and what can you say about the creamy goodness of Arborio rice slowly cooked in white wine and broth??? The bright colors of the vegetables made this a beautiful dish to serve. This was absolutely dreamy, thank you, Sandra, for posting! I'll definitely make this again!
