    sloe cooker's Note:

    This recipe was clipped out of a local newspaper and tucked away for a few years. I ran across this in my recipe file and tried it. It was very good and freezes well. This is one of the recipes in Good Housekeeping's Best One-Dish Meals. Hope you enjoy!

      WOW! Loved this! It was so easy to put together and had so much POW! I love the mushrooms, I only had buttons - but no matter, it still tasted terrific! I loved it! Creamy and delicious to the nth degree. I followed exactly, and it was as you claimed, just so soul comforting, and good for you! Thanks for posting such a down home comforting recipe!

      This was very, very good. I made this tonight with our pork steaks. I cut back the recipe to serve two. I added frozen peas to the end of the cooking of the mushrooms, before the orzo went in. I did that for color - no parsley, and we needed a vegetable with supper. Thanks sloe cooker for this great recipe. ***Also, I didn't use the milk called for in the recipe. DH can't have milk. I usually have soy milk on hand and I didn't, so I subbed chicken broth in for the milk. Maybe this little tip will help others that can't have milk.***

      I've never had 'real' mushroom risotto before, so I don't know if it compares at all, but THIS was good. I couldn't find shiitakes to save my life, so I used cremini mushrooms.
