    KLHquilts's Note:

    I blush to admit it, but I pulled this off of the box of Riso Baricella arborio rice ... but, hey! It's from Italy! :-) More importantly, it's good ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Bring broth to a simmer in a saucepan.
    2. 2
      In separate heavy saucepan, melt two tablespoons of butter with olive oil over medium heat.
    3. 3
      Add the onions, carrots, and mushrooms, and saute for five minutes.
    4. 4
      Add rice and cook, stirring constantly, for two minutes.
    5. 5
      Add one cup of the broth and cook, stirring constantly, until liquid is absorbed.
    6. 6
      Add the peas and another cup of warm broth and cook, stirring constantly, until liquid is absorbed.
    7. 7
      Add another cup of broth and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until absorbed; continue this process until all the broth is used. (They say it takes about 15 minutes, but it'll be creamier if you stretch it out to 20-25 minutes.).
    8. 8
      Add salt, basil, Parmesan, and remaining tablespoon of butter. Stir for two minutes to make sure cheese is fully incorporated and melted.
    9. 9
      Note: I use such a heaping amount of Parmesan that it's probably closer to a half-cup -- and it's all the better for it!

      Very good and very pretty. I especially liked the fresh basil flavor. I took your advice and used a heaping amount of Parmesan cheese. Thanks for posting.
