      This was absolutely wonderful -- and surprisingly not that bad in terms of calories/fat! We had it as a main course, and it was more than enough. I used leeks instead of shallots (because that's what I had on hand); reduced-fat smoked gouda from Trader Joe's, and spinach; I threw in a quarter cup of first-rate grated parmesan/reggiano. Absolutely delicious. I will absolutely, definitely make this again -- my husband would be too unhappy if I didn't! Thanks for posting this!

      This also was my first time making risotto and I was definitely intimidated, but the directions were very clear and my attempt was a great success. I love the addition of smoked gouda and spinach. I would highly recommend this recipe to anyone who had been hesitating making risotto. Thank you.

      I can see why this recipe has so many positive reviews. The arugula, shallot and gouda combo is incredible. Some crisp crumbled bacon on the top would make it the perfect breakfast, lunch or dinner!
