This is a delicious extra creamy rice, if you like a little heat then add in a pinch cayenne pepper --- I have made this using converted long grain rice instead of aborio, it turned out well but the Aborio is much better to use --- you may use fresh sauteed mushrooms in place of canned or use frozen peas instead of mushrooms --- do not add in any extra salt until the rice has finished cooking, and add in only if needed --- this recipe may be doubled :)

This was fantastic and ever so easy. Used long grain rice and fresh mushrooms because it's what I had on hand. Also added a dash of cayenne pepper as suggested. WOW! I will never hestitate to make risotto again. Thank you.

This is just the yummiest stuff ever! So creamy and really not difficult to make. Made some to take to a friend with a new baby. Thankfully I saved some for us. We used the frozen peas as I'm not a big fan of mushrooms. Also used a blend of Parmesan and Asiago and Romano cheeses as that's what I had on hand. I bought arborio rice for this recipe and it was fantastic. Putting this in my favorites folder! Thanks, Kittencal. Hope you are well. :)
