Goats Cheese, Bacon and Pea Risotto


Goats Cheese Risotto

@EthelTheGoat of Capricorn Goats Cheese fame kindly invited me to take part in the #CapricornChallenge on Twitter. I obviously said yes and an amazing hamper filled to the brim with ingredients, including Capricorn Goats Cheese from Somerset, landed on my doorstep this morning. I was given strict instructions by @EthelTheGoat to devise a lip smacking recipe to post on my blog.....and this Goats Cheese, Bacon and Pea Risotto is what I came up with - I hope Ethel approves.
