Riso, Patate e Provola

Riso, Patate e Provola is a traditional Italian dish that translates to “rice, potatoes, and provola cheese.” It is a hearty and flavorful dish made with a combination of sautéed onions, garlic, potatoes, rice, and provola cheese. Provola is a type of Italian cheese that is similar to mozzarella but with a stronger and smokier flavor. The dish is typically made with short-grain rice and is finished with a sprinkle of parsley.

  • 2 potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup short-grain rice
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup grated provola cheese

  1. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large pot or Dutch oven. Add the onion and garlic and cook until softened.
  2. Add the potatoes and rice and stir to coat with the oil.
  3. Pour in the chicken broth, and bring to a simmer.
  4. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot and cook for about 15 minutes or until the rice and potatoes are almost done.
  5. Remove the pot from heat and stir in grated provola cheese, stirring until the cheese is melted and well combined.
  6. Season the dish with salt and pepper to taste.
