Sep 15, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I had breast cancer surgery last week and was told not to over use my right arm, but I wanted to have risotto with our salmon tonight. This recipe fit the bill--no stirring for twenty minutes, standing over the stove! Excellent results, delicious addition to our meal!

Flour need to look harder or talk to your store manager. It is unthinkable in this day and age that you cannot get simple Italian sausage anywhere, I don't care how small a town is!

A tip--use an angel food (tube) pan and place the ear of corn on top of the tube when cutting off the kernels. They will all fall into the pan below and not fly around everywhere all over your table!"

This is how pommels frites are done in France, the best I have ever had. If you use slices instead of strips, they puff up and are fluffy and delicious!

Love Puttanesca, Italians do not put cheese on fish however. Fresh parsley is a nice touch. This is a great Lenten recipe!

First of all, the word is WARY, people, not weary. Weary is tired, wary is slightly suspicious of something. That said, this dish is fantastic, anchovies and all. We pair it a lot with swordfish in some form, a really good match!"

This is one of my very favorites, but my good friend from Rome, and this is a Roman dish, tells me that true Puttanesca has parsley but never basil. And he is a professional chef, so I have to go with his advice Anyway, I think basil in it changes the dish too much, it doesn't taste like true Puttanesca anymore.
