  • Knead risotto pouch before opening to separate rice grains. Recipe was developed using a Lincoln Countertop Impinger Oven, model 1301. Impingement oven time and temperature may be adjusted to meet your operational needs.

Suggestions

  • Try substituting 1 cup of marinara sauce for the white sauce.
  • If fresh pineapple is not available, use well-drained canned pineapple.
  • Placing the ham on top of the risotto mixture during cooking produces crispier and more flavorful ham.
