    This recipe was okay. I have a better risotto by Emeril that I make all the time. I thought I would give this a try. I'm not going to make it again. My one-year old loved it though. It didn't have anything great about it.

    I love tomato and basil, but this did not live up to its potential. Far from my favorite risotto recipe. The warm sweet tomatoes with a touch of balsamic were the highlight. The risotto itself did not have much depth of flavor and the consistency was too cheesey. If I were to make it again I would double the tomatoes and cut down on the mozzarella.

    This was beyond awesome. So fresh tasting, easy and even heated up well for lunch the next day. Made 1/2 recipe for my husband and I. Am making again today! Highly recommend this one!

    this was one of the best things i have ever made! it was amazingly delicious. i might have added a little bit more cheese, but otherwise, followed the recipe.

    This dish is amazing. It is a great weekend meal. I used tiny pearls of fresh mozzarella, so I didn't have to chop it up. The balsamic reduction puts this dish over the top in my opinion.

    First time making risotto and felt that the directions were clear and precise. Texture and flavor of risotto was excellent. Like another reviewer, wanted to make this more of a main dish entree, so added chicken (needed to save time so used rotiserre) as well as a few sliced sun-dried tomatoes. Will definitely make again

    Got Delicious? This was absolutely, positively great. We served this with CL's Hoisin Pork Tenderloin. The balsamic did set up a little bit, but okay.

    WOW! This was delicious. My changes - I left out the additional olive oil at the end (so only used 1T. for the recipe). I used dry sherry instead of dry white wine, increased the salt and pepper, and used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. I got 5 servings, about 1 1/4 cup each and it was a satisfying one dish meal. Next time I would add another 1/2 cup of tomatoes. It is a very cheesy-style of risotto. Would definitely make it again!
