Incredibly easy, rich, delicious risotto. Fantastic served with a green salad, a crusty baguette and a nice glass of red wine.

This had really good, rich flavor. I made it with Chianti braised short ribs and it paired perfectly with it! I have never made risotto with red wine before so was a bit skeptical, but red or white this dish was good!
