    1. 1
      Bring stock to boil in a saucepan, keep on a low heat while you are making the risotto.
    2. 2
      In saute pan, melt butter and add garlic and onions, allow to cook for 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add rice and stir continuously over a low heat until the grains start to soften.
    4. 4
      Over a medium heat begin to add the hot stock a ladle at a time, allow rice to absorb all stock before adding next ladle.
    5. 5
      Continue to add the stock gradually , stirring all the time for about 15-20 minutes (mum prefers to cook her risotto for 40 minutes, but up to you).
    6. 6
      Rice is ready when is soft, but still has chalky "bite" to it in the middle.
    7. 7
      Tip frozen peas in (and gammon or other cooked meat if using) and stir in and heat through, about 3 minutes. by this time the peas should be defrosted and the risotto bubbling again.
    8. 8
      Finally stir in parmesan and serve immediately with thinly sliced parmesan on top.
    9. 9
      For vegetarian do not use the chicken stock.

      this was fantastic!! perfect consistency- i added about 1/2 a glass of white wine before the stock and cooked it off a bit.... yum! the flavours worked so well together. Bacon adds a bit of extra flavour, too- i cooked mine with the onion and garlic (although i like really well done bacon, so it might just be me) thanks for posting, sure to cook again.

      Yummy risotto! I added three tablespoon of white wine before adding the broth and topped with some bacon before serving. It turned out perfect! I was weary of the peas cooking in three minutes, but they were just fine. We really enjoyed this dish. Thanks Perfect Pixie!
