  • It is important that the sides of your pan are at least 2 inches high for this recipe.
  • Arborio rice cooks to a creamy texture that is great in Risotto and rice pudding.
  • Look for Arborio rice in the rice section or in the International Foods section of grocery stores.
  • Crimini Mushrooms are sometimes labeled as "baby bellas". They have a browner color, firmer texture and stronger flavor than white button mushrooms.

I made this for Christmas dinner. I basically put everything in the bag the day before (minus the onion)and kept it in the fridge, and added the chicken stock/water right before popping it in the oven. A great side dish and my family loved it. Super easy way to pepare risotto. Watch your cooking times carefully! I went over about 5 minutes and it was just a tad overdone.

Love this and hubby loves this, too! I've tried making risotto the other way - NEVER AGAIN! This is oodles easier and DELICIOUS.

I did not care for this recipe. The texture was nice, though.

The risotto was okay but doing it in the bag was a mess. SO much easier to do it in a baking dish! If I were to use this recipe again I would put it in a 9 X 9 sprayed baking dish. Also, I would try mixing the cheese in before baking it. It was impossible to mix the cheese into the hot rice mixture in the squishy bag. Martha Stewart has a great baked risotto recipe on her website.

Made this for a holiday dinner. It was very easy. I had to double up the recipe to feed six adults. Everyone loved it! Very good flavor. Goes well with prime rib.
