    Baby Kato's Note:

    I got this delicious recipe from a sweet elderly italian lady. It's so simple to make and tastes great. Francesca always told me to use good quality cheese and wine, because you can taste the difference.

      Beautiful! The flavours layered together wonderfully and the cooking method was perfect. The only thing I'd change next time and it's a very small thing is to use double the amount of mushrooms, they melded together so well with everything else I wouldn't have minded a few more.

      Yummi risotto! The quantities were perfect, I did not have to add any drops of liquid, the rice was perfect.
      I loved very much the new addition (for me) of fennel. Thanks.
      Done for ZWT7.

      While I enjoyed the flavor of this recipe, I had a problem with the rice part. Mine was pretty pasty and still a bit crunchy. Not sure what I did wrong. Obviously it works as there are 2 5-start ratings already. I followed the directions as written and since the rice was still hard, I added another 1/2 cup of broth. Please give this recipe a try as I am sure it was purely operator error in this case..
