I've always been worried about trying to make my own risotto, but this recipe is spot on. The ingredient list and steps are easy to follow. I used broth instead of water just to give it more flavor, and I'm glad I did. We thought it tasted perfect. Everyone enjoyed it and went back for more. I'll keep going back to this as my main risotto recipe from now on.
