    This risotto recipe doesn't use cream or cheese which makes it much "lighter". It's still delicious yet healthy.

      Wonderful recipe, I have always panicked at the idea of cooking risotto but this method was perfect. I followed the recipe exactly and we all loved the results. I have already bought the ingredients to make this again. Thank you so much.

      I thought this recipe was great. The leeks and tiny bit of yogurt really make it. I used the cooking method from Oven-Baked Risotto (Several Variations), so only used about half the broth and wine (I also omitted the salt). I think arugula would be nice in this as a substitute for the spinach. Thanks!

      The recipe had lots of flavor and was pretty on the plate. I used a 10oz box of frozen spinach (thawed & sqeezed dry) instead of fresh. I stirred as I added small amounts of liquid and didn't use the full amount. I probably had a cup of stock that went unused. My result wasn't "soupy", but it was done and delicious. I also added 1/2 cup of diced sun dried tomatoes when I added the spinach & basil. Served with Marinated Salmon Seared in a Pepper Crust Made for ZWT4.
