I tried this recipe on a recent holiday-it was really good! Lots of nice fresh herb flavours.
Make and share this Pea, Basil & Mint Risotto recipe from Food.com.

Excellent! This was enjoyed by the whole family, thank you. I upped the quantity of the wine a bit and used streaky bacon instead of proscuitto because that was all I had. Delicious...
