directions

  • In a large saucepan, bring stock to a simmer. While the stock is heating up, drain sun-dried tomatoes, reserving the oil. Coarsely chop tomatoes and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, warm 2 tablespoons tomato oil, add onion and saute until translucent, about 6 minutes.
  • Add rice to the pan and stir until white spots begin to appear in the center of the grains, about 1 minute. Spoon a ladle full of the vegetable stock into the pan and cook on low until all of the stock is absorbed, about 2 minutes. Continue adding stock one ladle full at a time until the rice is tender and the mixture is creamy, approximately 20-25 minutes.
  • Add cheeses, sun-dried tomatoes, 2 tablespoons of remaining tomato oil, basil, salt, and pepper. Mix well and serve.

    This was delicious! I loved the flavor from the sun-dried tomatoes and the basil. I do agree with a previous review and I think next time, I'll cut back on the cheese amount listed. It was a bit too cheesy even for me!

    This had good flavor combinations, but I thought there was a little too much cheese and it kind of "drowned" the risotto. The prep could not have been easier. Very rich. Thanks!

    I loved the basil and sun-dried tomatoes in this, a nice way to dress up risotto. I felt that it was a bit too salty though with all the cheese and stock (we didn't add any extra salt too). I would probably replace some of the stock with water or use a low-sodium stock next time. Thanks for posting!

    I love basil, tomato, and mozzarella together so I knew this was going to be a treat. I used sun-dried tomatoes that were not packed in oil so I subbed in a little bit of olive oil to sautee the onions. The sun-dried tomato flavor was still strong enough in the end without the oil.

    I'm so glad I chose this recipe. It seems that it might possible be a LITTLE less calories than some of the others. I have to admit that I left the mozzarella cheese out because solely because I had so much fat in the rest of my meal (Mediterranean Pork Chops) that it would have been overkill. I know it would have been awesome with it though. ZWT4

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I joined Recipezaar to learn new recipes that are home cooked. I grew up having ready-meals like Encor and Stouffers and needed recipes that don't simply require opening a box and plopping in the oven! I enjoy cooking when I have the time to try new dishes. I make every recipe as written if I'm reviewing it to give a true review. If I make alterations that aren't in the directions, I don't feel it's a true reflection of the recipe; it's another recipe to me. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/participantbannerzwt5.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b367/chefpaulag/final-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/captain.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/329769/ninja%20bmp.jpg" width=75%> (Zaar World Tour 4) <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg"> <a href="http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view&current=cunningcrocodiles.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/cunningcrocodiles.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/DSC_0020.jpg"> (Australia/New Zealand Swap #15)
