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.

Very easy to prepare. I made as written except for cutting recipe in half (and it still made a lot). We liked it, but thought it was lacking a little in flavor. I think instead of milk, I will use broth next time for more flavor. You could use chicken for serving with chicken or beef for serving with meat. Made for Apring 2013 PAC.
