Baked Vegetable Risotto | Italian Cuisine

Vegetable risotto is a very simple and tasty dish which made with Arborio rice and exotic vegetables baked in oven with white sauce and cheese. Love the color and cheesy taste which makes me hungry anytime with glass of juice or any fabulous chilled drink. You can serve this baked risotto recipe with garlic toast as main course.

Arborio rice is a short-grain rice named after its origin town of Arborio, Italy. It's most commonly used for risotto, but you can also prepare it as plain table rice or use it for other dishes like rice pudding.
