What to serve w/ Osso Bucco??

Finally settled on an entree for New Years and now I am stuck on building a menu around it. The shanks are a given as they were a gift so can't change that portion but what starch? Risotto? Pommes Anna? Classic mashed? I am leaning to serving a just a salad for green w/ lots of assorted greens. Any menu ideas?

  1. I think a saffron risotto would be the traditional way to srve it but it would also be yum with some fresh papardelle pasta.

    1. Garlic mashed potatoes are a great choice tho risotto is a good one too....

      1. How about polenta:

        and some broccolini cooked with garlic and oil

            Ditto orzo. Maybe with sauteed onions/red bell peppers.

                That looks great, I'll have to try it. Thanks for the link.

          2. I serve it with gnocchi & works well, the recipe I make has enough sauce to go with it too.

              I like your idea a lot.
              Makes sense to me to use gnocchi.
              hum, wonder if I have time to do that tonight.
              don't know if it's doable or not.
              the osso buco is in the oven.
              love the idea of fresh papardelle also.
