Based on other reviews, I tried to add some flavor to this basic recipe. I added 3 tablespoons of butter, two cloves of garlic and used white onion because that is all i had around. I also used chicken broth instead of water. I ended up using a mix of parmeasan and reggiano cheeses. It turned out great!

I wish this wasn't called risotto - it doesn't use the correct rice or technique - this is not a short cut to risotto, it's a pilaf and it's not even that great. Look up a real risotto recipe and use that instead.

I love this recipe...with slight modifications. My fiance loves it, though it can be a bit bland, as other reviewers have mentioned. I used quite a bit more pepper than the recipe calls for, and I also add salt. I love the cheesiness, though some may not. Quick and easy....perfect!

My family loves this recipe!! I make it exactly as written, except I use risotto rice instead of regular rice. I actually cook it a little longer too to make the rice more tender. It comes out very creamy and cheesy. It is a staple in our house for the past few months. Thank you for sharing!

Even though I was very tempted to try out everyone's suggestions I made this as is and it's better than I expected. It's creamier than I expected too, but not as creamy as I would have liked. I will definately make this again, but try some of the alterations.

Good if you have a very flavorful main dish because this has a very mild flavor to it. Very easy and very pretty.

Seemed more like rice than risotto. It was good, but not what I was expecting. Not hard to make. I'll probably make it again.
