Mixed Mushroom and Tarragon Risotto

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by TishT

Got this one from my cooking club...and it is incredibly yummy and easy to put together. You can use whatever fresh mushroom combination looks good at your market. Add a mixed green salad with a tart red wine vinaigrette to round it out for a perfect meal!

Wonderful dish-- easy to follow recipe. Used onions, 1 cup. instead of leeks because that's all I had on hand. Served it with pork tenderloin rolled in herbs and broccoli rabe with garlic and pepper flakes. Great dinner
