Although not a true risotto, this low-fat version of the Italian classic is creamy enough to pass for the real thing. Serve it as the main attraction alongside steamed asparagus or a salad of bitter greens and warm ciabatta bread. If you don't have a clay cooker, use a wide Dutch oven with a tight-fitting lid.

  1. Soak top and bottom of a clay cooker in water for 15 minutes. Drain.
  2. Combine rice, stock, onion, garlic and wine in cooker, and stir to mix. Place covered pot in cold oven and turn oven to 450°. Cook for 40 minutes, stirring twice, or until rice is tender.
  3. Remove cooker from oven and gently stir in cheese and peas. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground white pepper.
  4. Arrange shrimp, tails at center, in an even layer over rice. Return cooker to oven and cook, covered, for 10 more minutes. Remove from oven and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Garnish with parsley. Serve hot.
