As part of our Fresh Cooks Live: TODAY's Spring Cookalong series, self-made rising food star Laura Vitale, host of the popular YouTube cooking show “Laura in the Kitchen,” showed us how to make a classic Italian meal that's perfect for spring.
"An Italian household staple, risotto is super simple to make and very versatile," Laura said. "This version happens to be my favorite, in-season spring vegetables add not only lovely flavors to this dish, but also great texture. After moving to the States, I noticed that this dish was only served in restaurants and people never made it at home. In reality, this is home food I grew up eating in my grandmother's kitchen and I want people to know that a good risotto can be made in no time, right in their own kitchen!"
