    Redneck Epicurean's Note:

    In college, my friend Angela and I went to visit her granny. She made this for us. It was the first time I'd ever experienced anything like it. It was delicious and her granny gladly gave me the recipe.

      7-10 STARS!!! My only caveat is that I didn't use ALL the broth. I was shy about a cup, thinking I didn't want to over cook. Better over than under, I say. DELICIOUS DELICIOUS DELICIOUS. Smells amazing while cooking (after the wine, I used a champagne/sparkling wine). The chives and wine and butter are a winning combination. I used an oninon in place of 2 shallots. and canned mushrooms for half the mushrooms (not cooking them but adding them to the others) and a bit more parmesan cheese and slightly more chives. Don't forget the addition of salt and pepper, espically the pepper. USE ALL THE BROTH!!! One of my favorite recipes on the Zaar!

      This was the first time I ever made risotto, and it truly came out restaurant-quality fantastic. Followed the recipe exactly, but browned some cubed prosciutto and added it at the very end with the shrooms - made a really amazing main dish. My more advanced-palate friend and my meat-and-potatoes boyfriend both loved it!!

      Excellent recipe. I used some extra parmesan cheese (because I like it alot). Also, a good substitution is some goat-cheese in favor of the butter.
