    Start preparing the Treviso red radicchio risotto by peeling the radicchio and leafing through it. Wash the leaves under running water and dry them well, then cut them into strips. Melt 20 g of butter in a saucepan, add the chopped shallot and let it simmer gently for a few minutes together with a ladle of broth.

    Add the rice and toast it in the sauce for two minutes, then add the radicchio and mix well.

    Now cook the risotto adding a ladle of broth at a time, as the previous one is absorbed.

    When the cooking is almost done and the rice is al dente (it will take about 15 minutes), add salt and turn off the heat. Add the remaining butter, Parmesan and a sprinkling of freshly ground pepper.
