directions

  • Bring broth to a steady simmer in a saucepan.
  • In a heavy 4-quart dutch oven, heat the butter and oil (from the containers of anchovies) over moderate heat. Add the onion, garlic, and six anchovy fillets. Using a wooden spoon, mash the anchovies. Saute for 1-2 minutes, until onion begins to soften it.
  • Add the rice to the pan; stir for one minute, making sure grains are well coated.
  • Add the wine and stir until it is completely absorbed.
  • Add a half-cup of the broth and stir until broth is absorbed. Continue adding broth, a half-cup at a time, and continue stirring continuously. Wait until each addition of broth is absorbed before adding the next half-cup.
  • After the rice has become tender (18-25 minutes), add the final broth and stir until absorbed. Turn off the heat and add the minced anchovies, butter, Parmesan, and parsley, and stir until combined (1-2 minutes).
  • Serve immediately.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

<p>My husband and I live in Cambridge MA with our dog Archie. <br /> <br />I used to be a mediocre cook, with little interest in cooking ... then I joined Weight Watchers in Oct. 2006. I finally realized that to maintain my weight, I needed to find lots of extremely yummy, healthy foods that I enjoyed eating -- and the best way to do that is to learn to cook, and to learn to enjoy cooking. This web site has been 95% responsible for getting me there! <br /> <br />As of Oct. 2007, I am a lifetime member of Weight Watchers, having lost 70 pounds and weighing less than I've ever weighed as an adult. I owe a lot of it to the recipes I've found here! <br /> <br />Re: rating recipes -- I only give out five and four stars, and very occasionally three stars. I don't see any point in giving lower scores; I can't be sure a recipe has turned out badly because of something I've done. Besides, even if I don't like it, the next person might -- and if they see a one-star review, they'll never bother to try it. So I review the ones I've loved, and don't say anything about the ones that didn't work for me. <br /> <br />Hooray for vegetables! <br /> <br />. <br /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/KiwiDutch/3chefstag1.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></p>
