I omitted the green peppers because I didn’t have any on hand. This was a nice side dish for the shrimp skewers that I made. I also made this for ZWT4

This is wonderful. It has a very rich and full flavor that is most satisfying. I made a 2 serving amount with 1/2 a cup of arborio and got enough for 4! I lightened it a bit by not cooking the onions in butter but just cooking them with the rice. For the cheese I used a scant 1/4 cup and it was a well pronounced flavor with that amount. I had it tonight with pan grilled halibut but let your imagination guide you. It cooks up creamy and tender with such a rich color that you'll want to use it for Christmas. It's a keeper.
