This is the recipe im known for! (im going to school to be a chef and I have perfected this, gotten to the point were I dont even need to open the cook book) This is my famous risotto, it is cooked rice with a ton of cheese!!! The best part is that this is the basic recipe! you can add different cheese or add veggies or use different stock. Risotto is alot like pilaf but risotto is cooked different, for rice pilaf all of the liquid the rice is cooked in is added at once, where for risotto you add the liquid in this case stock a ladle full at a time. This will take about 20 minutes but it is the best comfort food!

Ingredients:

4 cups chicken broth
3 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup finely chopped onion (from 1 onion)
1 1/2 cups Arborio rice or medium-grain white rice (arborio rice is traditional risotto rice)
1/2 cup of dry white wine
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese ( I usually ad a cup, you can buy fresh grated in the store all packaged)
1/2 teaspoon salt ( i skip this because the cheeese is salty enough)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper (I usually skip this)

In a medium pot bring the broth to a simmer, then cover and keep on low heat.

In a large heavy sauce pan melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until tender but do not brown it, look for transparent not brown, about 3 minutes. Add rice and stir to coat in the butter but do not brown the rice.

Add the wine and simmer until the wine has almost completely evaporated, about 3 minutes.

Add 1/2 cup of the simmering broth and stir until almost completely absorbed, 2 minutes.

Continue cooking the rice adding the broth 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly and allowing each addition of broth to absorb before adding more. Do this until rice is tender but still firm to the bite and mixture is creamy, about 20 minutes total. Remove from heat and add cheese and last tablespoon of butter, and salt and pepper if you wish. Serve immediately.

Enjoy :)
I also have recipes for wild mushroom risotto with peas, a vanilla and butter nut squash risotto recipe and I have a south west risotto recipe as well :) If you are interested in any of these let me know :)
