La Castagna, Italian for the chestnut. This is the time of year when these little delicacies are with us. For those who have never experienced them roasted and served warm you have been missing something wonderful. But roasted chestnuts are not the only way to enjoy them. They can be used in soups, salads, and Thanksgiving stuffing. One my favorite ways of serving them is in a risotto. Cut the roasted peeled chestnuts and saute them in olive oil flavored with garlic. Then add them at the finish of your risotto.
