    Lyndsay Knox's Note:

    Creamy italian rice dish that is served as a main course. This is a reduced fat version. I have reduced the amount of oil and cheese used, but you can also sprinkle parmesan over the top once it's served. We make this at least one a week. It's wonderful!

      I love this! nobody else really was into ot but me, but my family thinks if it isn't loaded with fat it can't be good, I thought it was wonderful, and i will make it again many times for myself.

      A great basic. I made a bed of this risotto to serve some baked salmon that was very simply dressed with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. I squeezed half a lemon into the risotto just before the parmigianno to marry the two. My batch did require about seven cups chicken stock, however. I also didn't realize I was out of white wine till too late, so I used 1/3 cup sherry and 1/3 cup white wine vinegar instead; it had a little more tang to it than it would've with the wine, but it worked out well since the salmon was on the boring side and the leeks mellowed out so much. I can't wait to try adding a shallot, a fennel bulb, and fresh pea pods in the Spring!
