  • Pour a ladle of hot broth and 50 grams of Scoppolato of Pedona into chunks; cook, adding more broth as it is absorbed.

Once emptied, you can use the half-shaped Scoppolato of Pedona with any risotto that goes well with cheese, besides being a nice method to the eye as well it gives the dish a touch of cheese; the hot rice melts the remaining cheese in half and shape is a lust for the taste buds, try it!
