- 1 glass of white wine
- 1,4 ounces of butter

- 2,1 grana padano (grated cheese)
- 1 ounce of onion
- 1 small bag of saffron

PREPARATION:
- Yellow the onion in 0,70 ounces of butter, together with the minced marrow.
- Add the rice and cook it with medium fire for 2-3 minutes, mixing softly and often, then add wite wine and let it evaporate;
- Add 3 ladles of hot broth, mix softly, then don't touch until the broth is evaporated, and you need to put more in the pot;
- Now, add the saffron and another ladle of broth;
- Turn off the flames when the rice is almost done, and it is not completely dry;
- Add the rest of the butter and the cheese. Mix with energy for half a minute. Let it rest for 1 minutes and serve.
