    This dish is delightful! We enjoyed it immensely! Found in Bon Appetit, April 2007. I don't personally like basil so I subbed parsley intead. We enjoyed the dish in spite of that!

      Excellent recipe! One thing - I didn't find the mixture particularly creamy (see step 12) despite using perhaps 1/2 tsp more butter than the recipe prescribed. Most risottos I have had were creamier than this one. Nonetheless, the taste did not suffer! Finally, I substituted fish stock for clam juice.
