Rixi e bixi (also known as risi e bisi) is a traditional Venetian dish. And it's so simple: rice with pancetta and peas.
Who knew such a simple dish could be so delicious?
Okay, so there's also cheese and you can add other things to make it your own like garlic, shallots, onions, etc. You have to love the Italians for combining two carbs in one dish. Yummy peas and rice? Yes please! But what is pancetta?
