Easy "almost" Parmesan Risotto

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This rice is like the real risotto, but takes much less time to prepare, if you prefer it more cheesy taste then add in more Parmesan cheese, I advise that you really be careful when adding the salt as the Parmesan already has a lot of salt content, but load up on freshly ground black pepper, this rice will become a favorite of yours, it is so good --- this is not a recipe for a fluffy rice, it is more on the creamy style similar to risotto, I most always add about 1 heaping tablespoon of minced fresh garlic in with the chopped onion but that is optional, really you can add in whatever you like to this, I have even added in peas :)

I am giving this a 5 BUT I did change the water to wine (miraculous lol) Perfect portion for 4 NO left overs in this house. I think I will double it next time so there are some left over. So good!!
