I'm so sorry to hear that. It looks absolutely yummy, and I love risotto.
I feel your pain. I tried a recipe the other night which SOUNDED like there was was no way to screw it up. I mean it was jarred spaghetti sauce that had cheese added to mixed in with pasta and broccoli. And it was disgusting. I threw out the leftovers today rather than eat it for lunch.
At least you got a pretty photo!
I've tried several new vegetarian recipes lately and each was really good. I make notes in my recipe binder and tear out the ones that don't make the cut. I'll eventually have a recipe binder with nothing but 'winners.' ;-) Joy!
That does look fabulous. I've been intending to experiment with a new risotto recipe and then get too nervous. I bet yours was still pert darned good.
All the action is here in the comments. You want some action, don't you?
