    Simply Chris's Note:

    This is a favorite around our place. Best when you can use fresh sun-ripened tomatoes with lots of flavor and nice red color. Requires lots of hands-on time, but definitely worth it. This comes from a cookbook called "Risotto" which contains all vegetarian recipes.

      Loved this! I used Roma tomatoes and it turned out so yummy! This was the first time I have made Risotto and it wasn't as difficult as I had imagined. The only thing I did wrong was not letting the liquid absorb fully before adding more so next time I will be a little more patient and it will be perfect.

      I love risotto and this was one of the best I have ever made. Very simple to prepare and delicious, with just the right consistency. The only change I made was to eliminate the butter, which reduced calories considerably.

      Very Rich!! Well worth the time and effort. Good on it's own or as a side dish. I didn't have fresh basil ... i used 2 tbls of dried basil. I'm sure with fresh basil it would be even better. I'll definetly make it again. Thanks!!
