Cheesy Risi E Bisi

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by pines506

From Rachael Ray -- this is awesome. So easy and sooooo creamy! I don't use the wine or the peas, but I have used julienned carrots with great results. You do need to use short grain rice to get the creamy texture.

This was great. I made this for my boss for their supper last night and they really enjoyed it. (I also tasted it and it was lovely) I followed the recipe exactly as written and served it with crusty French Rolls for a delicious supper! Thanks!
