We really enjoyed this dish. I didn't have parsley or chicken stock, so I used beef stock in place of chicken stock. It made a lot, and I'm glad because I think the leftovers were even better the next day! Even my 1 year old DS enjoyed it a lot. I also chopped the mushrooms instead of slicing them to make it easier for him to manage when eating. Lastly, to sneak in a little more veggies and add some color (not altering the flavor), I threw in a couple handfuls of baby spinach leaves during the last 5 minutes of cooking. We'll definetly be making this again! Thanks for posting!

This is a fantastic recipe - a must for your recipe box! I used 1.5 C of basmati rice. And I used montery jack cheese. At step 5 I added the onion/rice mixture and the 3 C fluid to my microwave rice cooker and cooked the rice that way. And then stirred in the mushrooms, parsley and cheese once it was done. It was perfect, my husband couldn't stop eating it. And he's not usually a rice fan. Thanks so much!!

Nice if a bit bland, where I have a problem is wondering how this meal can feed 6 people ?<br/>Three at the most !

Delicious recipe! We left out the onions, used Parmesan cheese rather than Romano, and added baby spinach like the last poster suggested! I can't wait to eat the leftovers!!

Served this alongside a Chianti braised roast that was slow cooked all day long. I added about 1/4 cup of Chianti, and finished it with all the ingredients it called for plus 1 T butter. This was delicious paired with the roast and sauce. YUM!

Really nice and simple recipe! I used Grana Padano instead of Romano cheese. Turned out delicious!

Have made this recipe several times now and it is WONDERFUL! Used only about a 1/2 pound of mushrooms and 1/2 of an onion and that was plenty for the amount of rice used! This is super easy and tastes delicious!

WONDERFUL! This was my third time making risotto. It's my new favorite staple. This recipe was excellent. Easy and delicious. I have tried someone else's recipe where they cooked the mushrooms in with the risotto, but I think cooking them and setting them aside helps them keep their own flavor so that you can taste them on their own.

This was really easy and delicious - my favorite kind of dish! I doubled the cheese and used mostly parmesan, and a little bit of mozzarella. Next time I will definitely double this recipe because I think it would be great reheated. Didn't have any leftovers this time!!
