Though a spring staple, peas aren't always ready for Easter dinner. This recipe utilizes frozen peas, but you can use fresh ones if you can find them.

This creamy, vegetable-rich risotto pairs well with ham or roast lamb and asparagus, another spring vegetable. If you skip the prosciutto and use veggie stock instead of chicken stock, it can be a vegetarian main dish.
