Parmigiano Reggiano, Barley, Butternut Squash And Pancetta Risotto

Parmigiano Reggiano, Barley, Butternut Squash And Pancetta Risotto.

The beginning of autumn is the perfect time to pull out the jumpers, pack away the picnic blankets and restock the larder with Parmigiano Reggiano. With its artisanal production and unique flavour, this cheese is the perfect addition for hearty and comforting autumnal recipes.

Parmigiano Reggiano is also highly digestible and filled with minerals and vitamins, making it a great cheese to keep on hand for an after-school snack or energy boost after a long day. With the cooler days of autumn ahead, try these warming and flavoursome recipes featuring Parmigiano Reggiano, the only Parmesan.

(Serves 4)


Parmigiano Reggiano, Barley, Butternut Squash And Pancetta Risotto


  1. Preheat the oven to 200oC. Place the squash, sweet potato, 2 tbsp oil, sage, garlic and half of the pancetta on a baking tray and mix to coat with the oil.
  2. Roast in the oven for 20-30 minutes until it begins to brown.
  3. Meanwhile, melt a knob of butter in a saucepan with the remaining oil and sweat the onion until translucent. Add the remaining pancetta and cook until golden-brown.
  4. Add the wine and reduce slightly before adding the barley, chicken stock and Parmigiano Reggiano rind. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes. Add more stock if necessary.
  5. Add the roasted vegetables and pancetta (reserving some for serving) and cook for a further 10 minutes until the barley is cooked through.
  6. Remove from the heat, remove the rind and stir through the crème fraîche, grated Parmigiano Reggiano and season to taste.
  7. Serve with the reserved roasted vegetables and pancetta, extra Parmigiano Reggiano and sage.
