This is a thick and hearty soup that really hits the spot on a cold autumn evening. I added a handful of dried shitake mushrooms and some rind from the cheese for extra flavor. I also added some salt and pepper to taste. Delicious!

Great soup, So easy to make and tasty. DH loved it. I only used 1/2 cup Risotto rice. Glad that i did, as we like a soupy soup. I think it would be to much with the 3/4 cup. I also used frozen aspargus, it worked great. Thank you Chia, for another winner.

Made and enjoyed for ZWT 4. This was a lovely change to normal risotto but the end result was a bit bland for me. I added some bacon and champignons and it was great so thanks for posting

So thick I added an extra cup of chicken broth to the pot. Very good as taste goes. Made for the Italian Risotto Challenge ZWT4

Loved it! Very nice flavor. I didn't have lemon zest so used lemon juice instead, which I added near the end. Thanks for posting, Chia.
