Spinach risotto is certainly not the first combination that comes to your mind when you think about risotto, but you’ll be surprised of its deliciousness if you try it once! As I had to finish emptying my fridge before going to Italy tomorrow for my much deserved holidays, I thought to use my fresh spinach to do something simple but nice, not long to prepare but also comfortable. For your info, I also had some mozzarella bites, black olives, tomatoes and capers and I granted myself a nice aperitivo before eating this risotto on my terrace. I am so happy tomorrow I can finally go home for some time, enjoy the beach, the family and some time off from work, far from the office for a while 🙂
