Risotto Baked with Sage and Saffron

This is a mild, smooth and creamy rice dish that works nicely as a foil for spicy entrees. Terrific comfort food. Because the risotto is baked, you don't have to stand and stir it for twenty-five minutes. Love the sage in this.

I did have to make a change because there were no shallots at the grocery store. Instead, I carmelized an onion and threw that it. I will be making this fairly often. it was very yummy and very easy and quick.
