  • 1 teaspoon Vigo Extra Virgin Olive OilAdd
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon Alessi Garlic Puree
  • 1 cup Vigo Arborio Rice
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine

In a large sauté pan over medium heat, add olive oil and onion. Cook until onion is soft and translucent, then stir in garlic puree. Add rice and toast in oil for about 2 minutes. Next, add wine and stir until liquid is absorbed.

When rice is almost done stir in pumpkin, cinnamon and Parmesan and season with salt and pepper.
