    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a medium saucepan, bring the broth and water to a simmer. In a large pot, heat the oil over moderately low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the rice to the pot and stir until it begins to turn opaque, about 2 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add the wine and salt and cook, stirring frequently, until all the wine has been absorbed.
    4. 4
      Add the sun-dried tomatoes and about 1/2 cup of the simmering broth to the rice and cook, stirring frequently, until the broth has been completely absorbed.
    5. 5
      The rice and broth should bubble gently; adjust the heat as needed. Continue cooking the rice, adding broth 1/2 cup at a time and allowing the rice to absorb the broth before adding the next 1/2 cup.
    6. 6
      Cook the rice in this way until tender, 25 to 30 minutes in all. The broth that hasn't been absorbed should be thickened by the starch from the rice.
    7. 7
      You may not need to use all of the liquid, or you may need more broth or some water. Stir in the pepper, pesto, and Parmesan. Serve the risotto with additional Parmesan.

      This was wonderful! I made a few changes, but they were pretty close to the original: I doubled the pepper, parmesan, and pesto and omitted the salt and onion. Thanks for posting this recipe!
