Seafood, Roasted Onion and Garlic Tomato Risotto
by Margaret Fulton to support Giant Steps Sydney

Featuring Paul Newman’s Own® Roasted Onion & Garlic Pasta Sauce

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Serves: 3-4


2½ cups chicken stock
60g butter
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 cup (200g) arborio rice
1 cup Paul Newman’s Own Roasted Onion & Garlic Pasta Sauce
3/4 cup frozen peas
60g freshly grated parmesan, plus extra, for serving
6 basil leaves, shredded
1 tbsp olive oil (extra), 400g
400g green prawns, peeled, tails left on salt and pepper




1. Bring the stock to a simmer in medium pan on low heat.

2. In another heavy-based pan on medium heat melt half the butter with the oil. Add rice and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds to coat grains thoroughly.

3. Reduce heat to low, add a ladleful of stock and stir constantly to keep the rice from sticking to the pan. Continue this process adding a ladleful of stock at a time and stirring until the pan is dry again. When there is just a ladleful of stock left and rice is tender but still firm to the bite, stir in the Paul Newman’s Own Roasted Onion & Garlic pasta sauce and the peas with the last of the stock. Cook, stirring, for a few more minutes.

4. Add the remaining butter, cheese and basil, stir, and taste for salt and pepper. In a medium-hot frying pan, heat the extra olive oil and cook the prawns for a couple of minutes until each side is cooked. Ladle risotto into bowls, place prawns on top and serve with extra parmesan if desired.
