    Dwynnie's Note:

    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!

      I've made this several times now; it's a "keeper." Easy to make, delish, and an impressive dish that will go with just about any meat.

      Wonderful!! This was extremely easy to prepare and tasted delicious. It got rave reviews and will definitely be on the menu again soon! I made it on the stove because I had chicken in the oven. I made as directed except that I added the broth 1/2 cup at a time, stirring until absorbed. I added the asparagus halfway through and covered the pan between stirs so it would cook through. I added the cheese at the very end. I can 't wait to make this again!
