    I love, love, LOVE this recipe. It even works well with wild rice. I have a baby and don’t have time to sit and stir the rice and broth for 20 minutes, so I add all the 7cups of broth in the pan all at once and bring it to a boil then I reduce the heat to a 2 on my dial and leave it UNCOVERED, stirring occasionally. It turns out perfect. (I also add more Parmesan (at least a cup more) because I like it extra cheesy. I get the wedge Parmesan at Costco)

    creamy, cheesy, greatt!
    I liked it a lot! I made a little change though; I did not add the cream, it’s perfectly creamy without it. Only doing 4 stars because of the cream.

    Delicious! I had leftover pho broth that I used for some of the chicken broth. Great way to use some leftovers

    Amazing. I used homeade veggie stock and Parmesan cheese. i did add the heavy cream at the end and while the Risotto was delicious I will add less or skip next time to reduce the fat.

    Very tasty. The only modification would to be reduce the amount of parmesan, a little overwhelming and could turn some off.

    Flavor is fabulous! I reduced the portions and even with that my rice came out a little crunchy. i used about 1-1/2C rice and a whole can of chicken broth. I probably could've used another 1/3 of a can of broth with an extra 5 minutes & the rice may have softened up. The yield was about 6 servings. I definitely recommend this recipe.

    delicious! i added 1/2 cup of white wine to the rice before the chicken stock. if your stock is hot it will take less time too!

    She is not kidding about the stove and the time! But the reward is some of the most delicious risotto I've had since Risoterria in Greenwich Village closed!
