    Kaarin's Note:

    Warm and comforting! I have used long grain rice in this also, just increased the liquid and cooking time, and also sometimes omit the cheese. The great thing about risotto is it's so adaptable!

      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!!
