Gourmet Mushroom Risotto
First, let me start out by saying that this is the first RECIPE dish I have EVER COOKED. I live with my cousin who is a gourmet cook so I have never had the need/desire to cook. I was craving risotto last night and started looking on allrecipes for ideas and found this. I followed the directions exactly except I used 1/3 of the recommended amount of mushrooms and added fresh asparagus. I cut the amount of butter in 1/2 as well. I also ended up stirring the risotto for about 50 minutes straight on a very low heat. I was told slow was better so I figured if I had the time I should give it my all. My arm is exhausted but my mouth is happy! I wasn't sure if my family was just telling me they loved it until later that evening my mom's best friend came over, who is an amazing cook, and had some and ended up stealing the recipe before she left! Overall I am really happy with the dish and can't wait to continue cooking!
