This recipe was the winner of our We ♥ Local Parsnips Recipe Contest and was submitted by Jamie Holt. Of the recipe, Jamie says, "Parsnips are my favorite root vegetable, and this savory dish does a great job at showcasing the variety of ways in which parsnips can be prepared. The grated parsnip blends in flawlessly with the arborio rice, making it a perfect dish to present to veggie-wary toddlers, and the parsnip crisps top it off with a nice crunch and flavor. My "parsotto" is also flexible; spinach could easily be substituted or supplemented with another favorite veggie, mushrooms, or crumbled bacon. The parsibilities are endless."
