Pumpkin Gorgonzola Risotto

I love Gorgonzola cheese because of its rich, creamy, pungent flavor with underlying sweet tones. Pumpkin Gorgonzola Risotto is a wonderful blend of flavors.
I added the Gorgonzola at the very end during the risotto’s rest period in place of the usual butter and Parmesan.
