  • Stir in the peas, add a little salt and pepper and cook for a further 3 minutes, until the peas are cooked.
  • Serve sprinkled with freshly grated parmesan and freshly ground black pepper.

    Absolutely delicious!!!! I have recently fallen in love with risotto, and this is THE BEST that I have tasted. I followed this recipe word for word, although it did take me a bit longer than stated, but well worth the wait. If you love risotto, I agree, it is not for risotto purists, but this is absolutely fantastic. English_Rose, this is beyond a doubt a winner.
