Select ingredients:


  1. In a large saucepan, brown the bacon and remove with a slotted spoon. Set the bacon pieces on a paper towel lined plate. Set aside.

Add 2 cups of chicken broth and pumpkin puree and stir to constantly until the rice has absorbed the liquid. Add the remaining stock, one cup at a time, until the rice is cooked to al dente, about 30-35 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat, stir in the Parmesan cheese, Goat's cheese and add back in the cooked bacon. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with dried cranberries. Serve immediately.
