Fresh Corn Risotto with Wild Rice and Pancetta
Sweet corn and nutty wild rice give a Midwest twist to the classic Italian rice dish.
To cook wild rice, rinse 1/2 cup wild rice, lifting the rice with your fingers to clean thoroughly; drain. In a small saucepan, combine wild rice and 1 cup water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 40 minutes, without stirring, or until rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. If needed, drain. Makes about 1-1/4 cups.
