Footnotes

  • Tip:
  • Risotto is an Italian rice dish. It is made by briefly sauteing the rice in olive oil or butter (often with some onion), then adding a little bit of stock, stirring almost constantly until the rice absorbs the stock, then adding a bit more stock, stirring, adding, stirring, adding until it's done. It usually takes between 20 and 30 minutes of stirring. When it's done, the rice is cooked through and bound in a wonderful creamy sauce that is made as the starch leaches out of the grains and combines with the stock.

This is really good! I was without a stove for a couple of days and found this while I was looking for stoveless recipes. I'm usually pretty skeptical of microwave cooking, but this recipe works...

This was so easy and delicious! I was pleasantly surprised with how creamy it turned out. The only change I made was to use only one can of tomatoes, which was definetely enough.

my hubby loves this. I'm ok with it.

This was very rich and tomatoe-ey, and was a great side dish for our meat and vegetables.

took a good bit longer than it said but was very good all the same
