I love risotto and needed to find one I could bake in the oven while I cooked dinner on the stove top. This is a very easy risotto that tastes great and was described as "no fail" on the Cooking Light website. To me, risotto is the ultimate comfort food that can always be served to company! And this one requires no slaving over the pot!
