Risotto is one of those dishes that people think is really difficult so they never attempt it. I, on the other hand, think it is one of the easiest and most versatile dishes one can make. I was not sure about risotto being gluten free but then I found actual gluten free risotto at the store; we were in luck. I did make the dish a bit different then Marcella does; I added more butternut squash and I kept the clams in their shells as I thought they were really beautiful. Served with a bit of wild arugula tossed with lemon juice and a little olive oil, this makes a perfect gluten free meal.
