Parmesan Risotto Recipe

Risotto is a creamy Italian rice dish. In this version from our Test Kitchen, the rice is briefly sauteed, then slowly cooked in wine and seasonings.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 cups arborio rice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup dry white wine or water
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, heat broth and keep warm. In a Dutch oven, saute onion in oil until tender. Add rice and garlic; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat; stir in wine. Cook and stir until all of the liquid is absorbed.
  • 2. Add heated broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly. Allow the liquid to absorb between additions. Cook just until risotto is creamy and rice is almost tender. (Cooking time is about 20 minutes.) Add the remaining ingredients; cook and stir until heated through. Serve immediately. Yield: 12 servings.
