600 grams radicchio
(di Trevsio aka treviso red chicory - finely cut into strips)
100 grams butter
100 grams bacon
(cut into small pieces)
175 ml red wine
1 bunch fresh parsley
(a small bunch, chopped)
(or chicken stock)
Put the onion in a heavy saucepan with half the butter and cook it until soft.
Add the bacon, cook for a couple of minutes then add the red chicory and parsley. Season and cook at low-medium heat for about 20 minutes.
In another pan melt the remaining butter, add the rice and stir until well coated with the butter. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon until the rise is translucent and begins to stick to the bottom.
Pour the read wine, let it evaporate the add a ladleful of hot stock. Let the rice absorb it before adding another one. Keep on adding the stock gradually, stirring the rice, to moderate heat until the rice is cooked.
