I had to substitute champagne for the white balsamic vinegar. Excellent! This recipe lends itself to a hugh number of variations as I have made it several times now. Once I even added shredded swiss chard - delicious!

i have made this twice now and it is amazing! i usually double the amount of mushrooms - using a basket of white and a basket and a half of baby bellas - and cut back on the parm. a little. so delicious and worth the time to make! thanks for posting a great recipe!

This was a wonderful risotto! The only thing I changed was that I used roasted garlic, which I had left over from a meal the night before.
