If you think cooking risotto is better left to the Giadas and the Lidias of the world, you?re not alone.

But thanks to a trio of new recipes from RiceSelect?, making the multistep dish is as easy as one, two, three.

Using RiceSelect?s versatile arborio rice, you can whip up everything from traditional to seasonal to even celebratory risottos this holiday season.

Take this hearty Northern Italian preparation, which features sweet sausage and sun-dried tomatoes, combined with a touch of heavy cream and Parmesan cheese. Your dinner guests will swoon--and swear your risotto came straight from the hills of Tuscany. 

If you?re a pumpkin lover, on the other hand, why not go for a creamy pumpkin risotto, which mixes the flavors of fall with the spirit of Italy. (Mascarpone cheese, anyone?)

And nothing says festive feast more than a little lobster risotto. Add the crustacean along with fresh herbs, garlic and shallots to arborio rice, and the party has officially started.

Still think making risotto sounds hard? Yeah, we thought you might have changed your tune.
