Shrimp and Pea Risotto

This week I have two special treats for you: #1 my step daughter Aubrey makes an appearance and #2 we are doing a two part Italian feast series. Part 1 is going to be Shrimp and Pea Risotto. Super yummy!  This is Aubrey’s recipe, but I added the shrimp and peas to make it a little more interesting, if you just like plain cheese you don’t need to add any extras.  As you may already know, risotto is a naturally gluten free Italian item, so there is no need to change the recipe or find different flours to mimic the real thing.  It’s just rice, cheese, shrimp and peas.   Next week I will be unveiling part two which will be Parmesan chicken.gluten free
