    NitaD's Note:

    Some think that Risotto is just too much trouble, but when you have guests that are in the kitchen drinking wine, and keeping you company it really isn't that bad. This is my stand-by risotto, we usually serve with fresh grilled steelhead. I got this from my friend Stephanie don't know where she got it from.

      Elegant and very good. I'm really pleased to be the first to review. We cut the recipe in half and it made two big servings.
