San Marzano Tomato & Basil Risotto: The Essence of Italian Comfort

Buongiorno, fellow food aficionados! When you think of Italy, what flavours come to mind? For me, it's the timeless duo of San Marzano tomatoes and fresh basil. Today, I'm introducing you to a dish that perfectly encapsulates this magical combo – a creamy, delightful risotto. And, with PetitsTré's premium quality ingredients, it's like taking a gastronomic trip straight to the heart of Italy.


  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 1 can of San Marzano tomatoes from PetitsTré
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil from PetitsTré
  • Salt, to taste
  • Grated Parmesan cheese for garnish


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pan. Add the onions and garlic and sauté until translucent.
  2. Pour in the Arborio rice, stirring constantly until it's well-coated and glossy.
  3. Gradually add the broth, one cup at a time, allowing each addition to be absorbed before adding more.
  4. Once the rice is almost fully cooked, stir in the San Marzano tomatoes and half of the basil. Continue to cook until the risotto is creamy and the rice is al dente.
  5. Season with salt and serve hot, garnished with the remaining fresh basil and a generous sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.
