This was my first time making risotto. My son in law loves it however my daughter is vegetarian so she will not order it out. Because of this I did substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth when I made this. I had never had it before but they said it was so good, I also liked it but had nothing to compare it to,what an easy first time risotto recipe to try.
I was getting ready to post the recipe I just made, but this is almost exactly the same so no need to post my own. The only differences between this recipe and my recipe was that I used 4 tbsp butter and no olive oil, and I used Pecorino Romano instead of Parmesan. Goes well with veal, pork, or beef.
Oh my gosh...I can assure you that I am not a freak but I have never had risotto before and I love it! I followed the recipe perfectly and made no changes. It is perfect!! Thank you so much for posting!!
