My father-in-law had just tried this for the first time at a local Italian Bistro and he said mine tasted even better than that!!! My mom thought it was a bit too "Mushroomy". I am not a fan of Mushrooms but I love Risotto, I loved it but when I re-heated it the next day I thought it didn't taste as good and was "Mushroomy" I weighed my mushrooms on a scale and followed the recipe but the packaging on the mushrooms said it was a pound but looked more than a pound (and it was), so next time I make it I will cut it back to maybe a pound and a quarter of Mushrooms. But if you are a mushroom lover please by all means follow the recipe! I'd also like to add that I used Barefoot Pinot Grigio for my wine. Be sure to have your heat at a Med-High setting to keep everything simmering as you add the broth or else it will take you forever to make this dish. If your new to cooking or bad at multi tasking in the kitchen just warning you that you will need to devote your un-divided attention for the entire process of making this dish so don't be trying to make other things at the same time. You need to focus on the RISOTTO!!!! Enjoy!
