Mushroom Risoni!

photo (12)Side dishes, what would we do without them, a necessary inclusion for any good dinner plate. A very quick and easy side but generally used in Italian soups and dishes, risoni isn’t used often enough in everyday meals. Just add ingredients that compliment the main component of your dish, say if you have some pork add Parmesan with pear or apple,  if you are serving chicken add corn and capsicum or fish you could add some soy, coriander and lemon, it’s so versatile and just carries flavor. The list is endless of what goes well with a good piece of beef but I would have to say mushrooms are up near the top with butter and garlic, this is my choice for today, garlic mushroom risoni!

What you will need………

1 cup risoni

1 tbsp butter

2 garlic cloves, crushed

200 g Swiss brown mushrooms ( There’s more flavor in a Swiss brown but feel free to use your favorite mushroom or a delicious mix )

1 tbs chopped fresh parsley

¼ cup Parmesan cheese

2 scotch fillets

20 long green beans

How to do it………..

Bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil and cook risoni according to packet instructions. Meanwhile melt butter in a fry pan over a medium heat add garlic, mushrooms, salt  and pepper, stir occasionally so the mushrooms don’t stick. By this time your risoni should be cooked al dente, drain water and set aside, bring same saucepan to boil for green beans. Get a griddle pan or another fry pan on a high heat for the delicious steaks. Once your steaks are cooked to your liking take them out of the pan and wrap loosely in foil and rest for a few minutes, add parsley and Parmesan cheese to your mushroom mix and stir through. Serve hot and immediately….enjoy!
