Baking is an easy way to make risotto for a crowd without standing over a hot stove stirring for an hour. The recipe below combines creamy, tender risotto with plump shrimp and a kick of hot pepper for a Southern take on this Italian classic. Crumbled bacon is the final touch that gives it the stamp of the American South.
This is one of my family’s favorite dishes. I make it as often as I can get away with since it is so easy, and everyone loves it. It’s even a sneaky way to get my kids to eat fresh spinach, so everyone wins!
