I wish I didn't use as much cheese, but I enjoyed this so much!

This was really good! Made without onions (out) but that was only change. Time was 13 minutes, stir, 11 minutes, stir and add liquid, 1 minute. Lovely! Will make again. Thanks.

This was so yummy! I made this for DH b/c he loves mushrooms. No mushrooms for me! I had to add more chicken broth and the cook time leaned more to 30 minutes. I did add in some 1/2 and 1/2 at the end to make it a little creamier. The mushrooms did not overpower the risotto. I feel with mushrooms they take over the flavor but not in this dish.
