I had a hard time deciding if I liked this recipe when it was done. It SOUNDED great. But I encountered issues with the rice being undercooked (I have no idea how as it is a long cooking process) and the finished product is actually quite flavorless. I was thinking it would be a nice "caprese" style, savory dish with the tomatoes, basil and mozzarella. It ended up being a bit sweet, actually - not at all what I expected. It wasn't absolutely disgusting or anything, just rather bland and all around a bit of a dud.
I added a lot of salt and it helped a little, but in the end none of my family really liked it (aside from the bit we picked at). This recipe also makes a HUGE amount of risotto!!! Plenty for 6+ people!
