100g bacon bits or pancetta

2 x 175g Risotto Pronto quattro formaggi (we used Riso Gallo)

200g frozen peas

200ml crème fraiche

50g Parmesan cheese, grated

2tbsp chopped chives

2 Pour in 700ml boiling water into a large pan, with two packs of  risotto pronto rice and cook for 7 mins.

3 Add the peas, and the crème fraiche and cook for 5 more mins until the rice is tender, most of the liquid.

4 Serve sprinkled  with Parmesan cheese and chives.
