This recipe was so delicious I started thinking about when I could make them again after the 1st bite. The tomato flavor was so rich due to cooking the rice in the tomato juice. The risotto was perfectly cooked which rarely happens with me. I followed directions exactly though I had to cook everything lower than called for-my gas stove is very powerful and I could see things burning if I didn't turn it down. For the 1st cooking I stirred it twice and for the final 15 min. I stirred every 5 min. because the rice will stick to the pan. It turned out beautifully and makes for a very pretty side or main course depending how hungry you are. It is filling as any risotto is, but feels light and very refreshing.
