Very creamy risotto with creamed peppers

Friends today a very tasty and above all very easy recipe, the VERY CREAMY RISOTTO WITH PEPPERS. In this period I particularly like making risottos, in fact if you take a peek on my blog you will find so many. simple and impactful, perfect if you need an idea for a first course that is light but at the same time rich in flavour, thanks to the creaming. Naturally I used yellow peppers because I had those available but if you can, use both yellow and red and green ones to give that extra touch of color to the dish. Also ideal to make on our summer evenings. Below is the recipe
