Used white wine and added a bit of garlic with the rice and a squirt of lemon to finish. Otherwise followed directions exactly, and boy is it good! Also very easy, and possible to prep other food while keeping an eye on the rice and stirring frequently. Served with simple turkey Italian sausages and some steamed chard.
YUM YUM YUM. I would make this again for company in a heartbeat.
My first experience w/Risotto and it is now a favorite. My husband couldn't quit eating it! I subsituted reduced sodium broth and used white wine. I agree with others...you can omit the parmesan and save some calories.
