Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This goes great with a turkey or chicken dinner, I also add in 2 tablespoons fresh minced garlic with the onions, I suggest to have your broth very hot when adding to the rice :)

This was a pretty good risotto, not my favorite, but a good out of the cupboard meal. I made it more traditional style, heating up the broth on the side, and gradually adding 1/2 -1 cup at a time, letting it absorb, and adding more. I will make it again if I find I have to cook dinner without going to the store.
