Prosciutto and Pepper Risotto

“I adapted this recipe as a number of people I cooked it for didn't like mushrooms but I didn't note down the original version so can't tell you what it was I'm afraid! I made this for 4 friends before and I 'm sure we had some left over so I've put the portions as 5. I personally add some extra cream in as I like the texture quite creamy and also once I added some chopped asparagus too which worked really well.”
