Prosecco and Parmesan Risotto

Photo: Jamie Chung; Styling: Ariana Salvato

The pressure cooker creates creamy risotto in a hands-free way. We tried this with Carnaroli and Arborio; we liked the forgiving nature of Carnaroli, which remained al dente, while Arborio rice produced a softer grain in the cooker. Don't worry if the rice is a tad runny after cooking--it thickens as it stands before serving.
