Directions

"This was really good. It does not really reheat very well though. Much better than the first risotto recipe I tried. Would be good with shrimp also."

MY REVIEW

"Good and easier than I thought it would be. Adding a spring of fresh minced basil to the top before serving. Very good. Will definitely make again and keep single servings on hand for work lunches."
