    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.

    Great! I was trying to find Emeril’s three cheese recipe but this closely resembled it. I just changed up the cheese and added some white wine. I like how she added the risotto though, it has been the best way to do it, yet!

    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!

    It was absolutely amazing! There was hardly any left by the end of the evening. The whole family kept going back for just "one more bite"😉

    Really nice risotto. I added a bit of cheddar to it since I ran out of Parmesan half way & it was still a success. I also had no onions but I don't think it made much difference leaving it out.

    The texture was different than any other risotto. Would make again. But the cheese choice was not one I would have made.
