    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    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!!

      I'm quickly becoming a fan of Kittencal! This is a great and easy recipe. I only use 1 pat of butter, and don't add any salt (plenty of salt from the chicken broth). I've used grated parmesan cheese from a bottle, freshly grated parmesan, and most recently, freshly grated asiago cheese. All delish, all came out great! Thanks for another fantastic recipe!

      All I can say is delicious!! This recipe was so easy and very yummy. I forgot to add the italian seasonings, but it was still fantastic. I served with a crockpot pot roast and the juices over this risotto were divine. My only regret was that I didn't make more. Thanks for the recipe!
