    Made it last week. First time ever making any risotto, turned out amazing! Making it again today!

    Easily the best mushroom risotto I've ever had. Recommended to throw a bit of msg in as well, but still amazing without it.

    Yummy! Made a couple times now. Replaced the white wine with Marsala this time. Turned out great. Don’t rush the process and you’ll get the perfect amount of al dente.

    Very tasty! I used vegetable broth and cut the recipe in half. I did not have the Parmesan cheese but it was still very creamy.

    I’ve never cooked risotto before so it was probably user error but it didn’t cook all the way. Other than that this was delicious and easy to make!

    This was awesome! Replaced the mushrooms with spinach and added finely freshly grated 1/3 cup Romano & 1/3 cup asiago cheese & 1/3 cup Parmesan! Family thought it was the best Risotto they've ever had!
