    Hello everyone!

    48 hours, lots of Farro, much cooking, copious amounts of eating and a very messy kitchen later, I finally have a recipe! Hope you enjoy reading it as I did putting it together. Don’t forget to leave your comments!
    And even if I don’t win, this was one contest worth eating all that yummy Farro for.
