Boxing clever

Riso Gallo’s Risotto Pronto, £1.99, cooks in just 12 minutes, so it’s a great storecupboard standby to make into a quick mid-week meal or when unexpected guests turn up. Choose from asparagus, four cheese, sun-dried tomato and saffron, or my favourite, porcini mushroom. Just scatter with plenty of fresh parmesan to serve.
