"I haven't seen any recipes with bell peppers in it, so I decided to try this on my own. Had a 6-person dinner party that I served with some bone-in pork chops. I first thought I made too much, but all of my guests were upset that there wasn't more. Hope you like it." — RBM14

Delicious! This was my first attempt at risotto and it was easy enough to be a success. It does take some dedication to stir, but it is well worth it. I will definitely be making this on a regular basis. Next time around I will try a few changes: (1) I tasted the concoction all the way through cooking. The flavors were fabulous with each step and continued to build on each other. However, at the end when I added the parmesan cheese, it covered up some of the depth of the wine, chicken broth, and peppers. Next time I will add less cheese or try it with none at all. (2) I will not add salt while cooking the veggies. It's pretty salty as is. (3) I'm a person that loves the sharp bite of white wine. I would like to try adding another 1/4 cup of wine and reducing the chicken stock by 1/4 cup. These are just my ideas and I will mess around with it, but even without these changes the recipe was amazing. On a side note, I didn't have any portabellos so I used crimini instead. They worked perfectly.
Really good, simple recipe that lets the flavor of the Portabellos stand out. This recipe is very versatile and can easily be modified to your individual taste. Get creative!
This recipe was great. I made a few changes. I used cremini mushrooms instead of portabello (I just like them more). I used red bell pepper instead of green. I also eliminated the heavy cream. Still divine and creamy!
Great risotto recipe! We left out the green pepper, because we don't care for them. Other than that, I followed the recipe. Risotto is a labor of love. It needs to be cooked slowly, stirred constantly, adding a ladle of broth at a time, waiting until the liquid is absorbed before adding more broth. It's time consuming, but well worth the effort in the end. Creamy, flavorful and delicious!
