Expert Tips

Canadian-style bacon adds a delicious smoky flavor with less fat and fewer calories than ham. But leftover cooked ham can be used if Canadian bacon is not available.

Risotto is a wonderful Italian rice dish made by slowly stirring broth into rice as it cooks. This streamlined dish has a similar creamy texture, but we've eliminated the constant stirring.
