Butternut squash Risotto with panchetta, goat cheese and walnuts
This risotto is like an explosion of flavor, it’s so delicious. Perfect for the fall weather, where you just want to curl up with some lovely comfort food, but even though it is comfort food, it doesn’t mean that it’s unhealthy, because I actually manage to make this one relatively low calorie (122 calories per 100 gram) to the delight of the readers who are missing some of the more healthy recipes lately, yes I know recently there has been a few cake and pizza recipes, but sometimes it’s nice not to care about calories 😉
