Grandma G's Mushroom Risotto

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by GrandmaG

My Granny Newman gave me this recipe some 30+ years ago to use in a home economics class for Italian day. My teacher and other teachers loved it. I got an A+ for this one. GrannyN was a great cook and a wonderful Grandmother, I miss her so.
