Thyme Pecorino Risotto with Pan Seared Scallops and Arugula


Thyme Pecorino Risotto with Pan Seared Scallops and ArugulaThis delicious recipe is from cooking coach Monica Puri Bangia, author of the Sharing Plate blog.
 
Monica studied at the French Culinary Institute in New York City and shares simple recipes made with delicious, healthful ingredients, who's based in northern New Jersey about 15 miles west of Manhattan.
 
Monica had this to say about her recipe: “We all love scallops in our family. Especially with some delicious risotto! A lot of people are intimidated to make risotto … but one just needs to have a bit of patience.”
 
“The method is quite simple and the flavor combinations are limitless. I decided to add fresh thyme and Pecorino cheese in this dish. I love Pecorino for its delicious punch of flavor”.

3 garlic cloves, chopped
