METHOD

Add the Arborio rice and mix well.Sauté the diced onion in half the olive oil over medium heat. Add about ¾ of the vegetable stock, one ladle at a time until the stock is absorbed by the rice. Continue this process until the rice is approximately halfway cooked. Place the rice on a plate and keep in the refrigerator until final cooking. When you are ready to eat, blanch broccoli, cut in half and sauté with the remaining olive oil. Season to taste with some of the salt and pepper. Add the half cooked rice to the broccoli in the pan and mix well with tomato sauce and cream. Little by little ladle the remaining stock to the rice and continue stirring until the rice is almost cooked. Add the cold butter in pieces as well as the parmesan cheese. Then add the white wine and chopped parsley and continue to stir for a few seconds. The rice should not be mushy. Briefly, sauté the rocket leaves with the remaining olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour the risotto into a pre-heated pasta bowl,  sprinkle parmesan cheese, and 2-3 drops of olive oil, on top and serve immediately.
