My family loved this recipe the first time I made it, but we all felt the tomatoes should be cooked. I now make it using the roasted tomatoes from the CL recipe"Chicken and Brie Sandwich with Roasted tomatoes." It's wonderful. Try it.
Risotto with Fresh Mozzarella, Grape Tomatoes, and Basil

This is awesome. I think it would also be good with roasted red peppers instead of the tomatoes. I made this as a main dish and found it very substantial. The balsamic vinegar is delicious. Would absolutely make this for company.

Fantastic! I was cooking a birthday dinner for my wife, and made this with the CL "Seared Lamb with Balsamic Sauce". Great Winter meal with a nice Zin. I followed the instructions, and will make them both again!

I really enjoyed this risotto, but the BF thought it was just ok. He didn't like mozz cheese, he prefers when I make risotto with parm. I thought it was good as written. I would probably add the tomatoes in earlier next time to allow them to cook down a bit more as well. Overall, this is something I would make again.

Delicious! Didn't have half and half, but skim milk worked just fine.
