I had been intimidated of making risotto for the longest time. My mom use to make this dish for us a lot growing up and I loved it so much. Well, one day I was craving a nice warm bowl of this creamy rice dish and I finally decided to give it a try.
I really don’t know why I was so nervous to try making this because it really is so simple. It does involve a lot of active cooking time so it’s not one of those dishes that you can prep and forget, but I promise you the end results will be worth it!
Its amazing how creamy and decadent this dish turns out to be when there is zero cream added to it. The sautéed onions and peppers add a lovely sweetness to the dish. Top with some fresh Parmesan and parsley and I bet that you will be going back for seconds!
