    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.

    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.
