      Continue adding stock 3/4 cup at a time and stirring constantly until rice is mostly translucent but still opaque in the center.
    11. 11
      Rice should be al dente but not crunchy.

      I really enjoyed this. I doubled it to feed my family, using 12 cups of broth and 12 TBS of butter. It was very rich and very worth the calories! Not difficult to make but a little time consuming. I stirred in some peas and loved the balance of salty parmesan and sweet peas. I can't wait to try it with other veggies. Thank you very much for posting!

      sounds delicious but high in calories(over 500 cal per serving!) and the sodium is sky high!
