    I'm amazed. I NEVER thought this recipe would be as good as it was. I added fresh cilantro and shredded rotisserie chicken at the end -- and it was great!

    Excellent & so much easier than traditional risotto. Have made several times & always great. I substituted arugula & fresh (or canned) button mushrooms for the spinach & portobellos. Turned out great!

    I honestly am amazed by this recipe. The texture was perfect, and the taste was delicious. It sure beat standing over a hot stove stirring traditional risotto! I was wary that it might be too good to be true, but now I think it's just too good not to make again!

    Can't beat for ease and taste. My guests couldn't believe I made it in the microwave! Have tried many of the variations. I use homemade chicken broth.
