Plump, starchy grains of Arborio rice give risotto the creamiest consistency.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a small saucepan, combine broth with 2 cups water. Bring just to a simmer; keep warm over low heat.

  • In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium. Add onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Add rice; cook, stirring, until well coated, 1 to 2 minutes. Add wine; cook, stirring, until absorbed, about 1 minute.

  • Add 2 cups of hot broth mixture; simmer over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until absorbed, 5 to 7 minutes. Continue adding broth mixture, 1 cup at a time, waiting for liquid to be absorbed before adding more, stirring occasionally, until rice is just tender and creamy with a little liquid remaining in the pan, 20 to 25 minutes total (you may not need all the broth mixture).

  • Stir in spinach, peas, Parmesan, and butter; cook until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately, with more Parmesan, if desired.

THIS was incredible! i will be making this until the day i die! instead of all the traditional risotto steps, i used Martha's "Easy Risotto" recipe(which i do not see listed on the website anymore,) but increased the Arborio rice to 1 and half cups or rice. After letting the cook on low for 25 minutes i cam back to the pot to finish cooking off the last of the liquid and add the finishing ingredients. My dinner guests loved this so much i had to hide the leftovers!

Pretty good recipe, fun, and easy. When I tasted the pasta after adding the broth the third time, I thought it was a little bland, so I added parsley and oregano, and that seemed to help. Next time I will add the parsley and oregano earlier (maybe before the first 2 c of broth) so that the flavors blend more. I also added fresh mushrooms and garlic. Bacon or prosciutto would be a good addition to this recipe.

Excellent risotto recipe, I have tried others but this was the creamiest and tastiest by far. Excellent for a cool evening with a crusty baguette. Even my kids enjoyed it.
