This was great and pretty simple. The pesto and mascrapone really make it stand out! It was pretty rich though so small portions were necessary. The leftovers didn't hold as well as the original.

Decadent and delicious! I really liked this a lot. I made this exactly as directed and it came out perfectly. It would be fun to try it with different pestos too. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe! Made for Best Of 2011. Thanks Shuzbud! :)

Fabulous. Thought it was going to need parmesan, but it totally didn't. Nice rich, elegant flavour. Would be nice for company! Update: I made this for company and changed the servings to 6 which fed 4 people appetizer size servings. It only used about 4 cups of broth. Everyone loved it.

This was absolutely delicious, even before adding the mascarpone and pesto! I've been on a diet, so this was a little rich for my tastes, but really delicious. It took a bit longer to cook than posted, but I didn't cover it while cooking since that wasn't in the directions. This is a really rich and flavorful risotto! Made for ZWT7!

Yummy! I love risotto but haven't had it for awhile. This was such a great variation from what I usually make. I used a basil pesto and loved it with the mascarpone. Creamy and good. Thanks Shuzbud for a nice new keeper. Made for ZWT from a fellow Emerald City Shaker.

This is a delicious risotto! I used low sodium chicken broth and omitted the salt because we are watching our sodium. Wonderful flavor and easy to prepare. We enjoyed this as a side dish with grilled rib-eyes. Made for PRMR.

Lovely risotto! I love the creaminess the mascarpone gives it and the amount of pesto was perfect. I did not add any salt or pepper, with the sodium in the chicken stock, it didn't need it. We will be enjoying this often, thanks Shuzbud for another keeper! Made for PRMR.

I loved this! Very tasty! It was my first time making risotto, and it turned out just right. It was very creamy with the cheese, and the flavor was excellent. I didn't even add salt or pepper. The cheese and pesto was plenty flavorful. I made it as a main course, as I am trying to eat less meat.
