This was so good. This was the first risotto I have ever made and I was a little worried about half way through the cooking process that I had chosen the wrong rice. It was getting nice and creamy but the rice was still way too chewy. (I used calasparra rice that I had leftover after making paella). Once all the liquid was absorbed it was just right. The feta and parmesan combination is one of my favorites and along with the onion and garlic it was a perfect side dish. Thanks for another delicious recipe Galley Wench!
