I was watching Rachael Ray and she was making risotto with peas which she said is the first solid food for many Italian children. She was also trying to dispel the notion that risotto is hard or overly time consuming to make, and instead was rather easy. The Italian phrase was "Risi e Bisi" which means rice with peas, as shown in this link.
I was struck by how similar this sounds to "easy breezy" or "easy peasy" especially when Bisi (pronounced with a z sound) means peas, and that with children's rhyming or mishearing that the r sound from the first word could have migrated to the second for the phrase "easy breezy".
Does anyone know if there is any validity to this hunch?
