This recipe sure had the "WOW" factor at a pot luck tonight! Friends were very impressed how well my first Risotto turned out. Then I told them it took less than 30 minutes to do in the microwave and they just couldn't believe it. I followed the recipe just about to the letter. Main difference, I precooked the onions and garlic for about 5-6 minutes. Then followed the recipe. I used chicken broth to for the little extra flavor. About 2 minute before the timer went off, I opened the lid to check the rice, felt it could be a bit moister, so I dumped the other 1/4 to 1/3 cup of left over chicken stock in and went about 3 more minutes. I think next time, I'll add some heavy cream to see what that does for the overall texture. All in all, this is a great keeper!
