Risi e Bisi

Total time: 25 minutes
     This classic Italian dish is normally served as a first course (as are all pasta and rice dishes in Italy).  We think it makes a great, creamy side dish.  The original is more like a thick soup, but I made this a bit thicker.  Still, like all risottos, it should be creamier than the American adaptations, not holding it's shape on a plate.
