    DrGaellon's Note:

    Microwave Risotto is great because of its forgiving nature; if you forget it for a half hour, nothing is lost. Also, it is a wonderful clean-out-the-fridge, use-your-imagination, I-just-bounced-five-checks recipe. It reheats well too. You can use margarine or olive oil in place of the butter, and you can use apple juice or white grape juice in place of the wine.

      So easy! It had a strong wine taste to me. It could have been the type of wine. I will either try a different wine next time or up the broth and reduce the wine.
