Reviews for Vegetable Risotto
"Ok, sorry I can't really say I made this recipe but I followed this recipe except I added 3 bags of Birds Eye steam fresh baby broccoli blend in place of the other vegetables. It turned out great but if you like your vegetables more crisp tender I might cook a little less time or add vegetables a little later. I loved the arborio rice and the wine for additional flavor."
"This risotto is absolutely amazing! We didn't have the winter squash, and I used water instead of wine. My husband, who's not fond of veggies, gobbled it up. We were disappointed we didn't make more!"
