Add another 1/3 of stock and also add puréed roasted butternut squash, cook for another 15 minutes. Add the final 1/3 amount of stock and cook until Arborio is al dente. Next, season with Sabatino Tartufi Truffle Zest, salt and pepper and fold Parmesan cheese. Cool down rice on a sheet tray, spread thinly to cool faster.
Set up a tray with seasoned flour, another with egg wash, and a last one with bread crumbs. Once rice is cooled, use a scoop to form a 2oz ball and roll in seasoned flour, then egg wash and lastly roll in bread crumbs. Fry until golden brown — around 3-4 mins at 350F oil.
