    BecR's Note:

    A simple and delicious light Italian meal, perfect for the summertime! Round out the meal with a garden salad, if you like, and enjoy the risotto with some freshly baked Italian bread real butter and good cheese (such as Port de Salut). Buon appetito! Follow with a nice glass of Limoncello for a lovely after-dinner digestif. Note: This is a one-dish meal if you use cooked shrimp. Makes 4 servings. Adapted from "This Italian Life".
