I think Brussels sprouts would go well with that. It's a favorite Italian vegetable, and earthy, like your main dish.

I like to boil the sprouts until just tender, then saute in a skillet (season with salt and pepper) with rendered bacon and a little minced garlic. Add a small hand of pine nuts or slivered almonds at the last.
Or you could just add them to the Osso Buco.

Don't forget some good crusty bread to mop up the tasty juices!

We get by with a little help from our friends

You could serve the risotto inside baked/roasted mini/baby pumpkins. Or, butternut squash soup, and green beans with roasted chestnuts as a side.

Andy, how's the Osso Buco coming.
What are we having for a side dish?
Enjoy your evening.

Soooooo Andy... what did you end up pairing with the OB? If you posted it already, I missed it!

Dinner was great. The OB was a big hit. After some discussion with SO, we (she) decided to skip the veggie side all together.

Thanks to you all for taking the time to respond. You gave me some teriffic ideas for next time.

Good idea. You know, sometimes, less is more.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.
