Creamy, Cheesy Risotto
40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)
15 ingredients
4 servings
Note: The ingredients have been corrected to reflect many of the reviewers comments that pecans were listed in the ingredients but pine nuts were mentioned in the instructions..either works great. A creamy cheesy risotto. The nuts add a nice crunch. It's easy to make, and pairs well with an oven baked dish, as it does need some attention while cooking. Contrary to what some say, risotto does not need CONSTANT stirring, but it does need stirred frequently. You don't want to let it go for more than a minute or so without a stir. Using low sodium chicken broth is important, as the cheese can be salty. This was a contest entry for RSC #11.
