A quick and easy risotto

Top Review by Scrapbook Lori

This was a good recipe. The only changes that we made were adding parmesan for abit of flavor, and we did not use the saffron threads. I agree with the other review regarding the flavor of the peas in the dish. I feel it took away abit from the dish. Thank you for posting
