    This was wonderful. My husband made it for my birthday & it was hard to keep from eating it all. Aside from the constant stirring a risotto needs, this is a simple recipe with very lovely results that I wouldn't hesitate to make for company. It's also not the usual way to use leftover ham, since everyone gets tired of sandwiches.

    Sorry, it does have potential, but that potential involves NO SUGAR SNAP PEAS. I love sugar snap peas, and they simply didn't work. I would sub in broccoli, asparagus, or even regular peas. The sugar snap peas didn't mesh with the other flavors and detracted from the overall flavor. Everything else was fine-good basic risotto recipe.

    We cook a ham just to have the leftovers to make this dish. Household favorite which I do regularly serve to guests. I don't change a thing about this recipe.
