      Wow, this is terrific! I've made it twice already, as I grow basil in a pot on my porch. The first time I did not have onions, so I substituted dried onion flakes (1 1/2 Tbs.) and it still turned out great. Also, I use half the butter, and I make mine with half brown arborio rice and half white. This means I need to add extra water (1 3/4 cups) and cook it longer (about 50 min.) Thanks for this great recipe!

      Simple but really delicious! This was my first attempt at making risotto and it turned out really well. We added bacon and capsicum bits, and used chicken stock liquid rather than powder+water. Didn't use bay leaves either and added salt and pepper to taste.

      For a creamier, less tart risotto, add two tablespoons milk and a pinch of sugar to the water/tomato/rice mixture. The amount of sugar will depend strongly on what type of tomatoes you use. For example, I used fresh garden tomatoes which were a little too tart for my tastes, so I added about 2 teaspoons of sugar.
