Much quicker to make than traditional risotto and loaded with protein, minerals and amino acids. A few of my other favorite risotto dishes are Carrot “rice” Leek Risotto with BaconSeared Scallops over wilted Spinach and Parmesan Risotto, and Spring Asparagus Risotto.

  1. I just found the sauce form this recipe in your website: https://www.skinnytaste.com/filetto-di-pomodoro-1-ww-p/
    There is just a broken  link in this article.

  2. Hello Gina , the link to the “homemade sauce” is broken. It seems the blog no longer exists. I would love to try this recipe but I can’t get my hands on the sauce! Where else can I find the recipe for this sauce?

    I’m new here, I recently tried three of your recipes – I loved them. Looking forwards to trying this one soon!

    Kind regards,
