Love this risotto! I substituted the bacon for chorizo and added chicken and prawns and peas just before the end. Such an easy version of a risotto and so tasty!

I've made this a couple of times now and it's brilliant! You do need quite a lot of stock or the rice is a bit hard, but even so it still tastes great.

I can see why this has so many comments. It has to be the easiest risotto ever and really good taste.As suggested by others i used some porcini mushrooms and vermouth instead of wine. Very tasty, will be made again. Mine took the alloted time so no issues there, five stars.

Easy risotto recipe. Didn't have wine but still tasted good. Makes a good healthy amount. Very versatile. I added celery and courgette. Took a bit longer in the oven, around 30mins.

Lovely! Went down well with all the family. Very filling. I cooked for 30 minutes and it came out perfectly. We had with steamed broccoli. Going to try it with chicken and bacon next time and maybe some mushrooms too!

Have made this a few times - always good. This time I didn't have enough risotto rice so made the quantity up with pudding rice. This worked fine and still only took 20 mins.

Tried this meal last night after needing to finished up most of the ingredients from the recipe and very glad I opted for this. It came out lovely and creamy, hubby agreed it tasted amazing! I fried off some celery and mushrooms with the onion. Used a porcini mushroom stock cube instead and used unsmoked bacon for a less salty taste, oh and a whole glass of white wine! ;o) Kept everything else the same. Definitely wasn't 18 mins and even after 30 mins mine still wasn't done, ended up being in for about 45 mins but was worth the wait and would definitely make this again. It could be easily adapted and changed to suit tastes as well. Ended up serving this with green beans as I needed to finished them up. Perfect :o)

I found this to be quite nice, although I did substitute chorizo for bacon and added baby spinach at the end ( won't add this next time, think peas would work better)
I halved the recipe for the two of us and found it plenty and served it with garlic bread. Next time I will increase the chorizo and maybe add bacon as well, also add garlic.

REALLY yummy! Even my picky 5 year old liked it :) I added a bit more stock (800 ml) and cooked it for about 30 mins as previous reviewers had said it took a bit longer. I also added chopped mushrooms at the same time as the onions and a few frozen peas with the stock to up the veg content - I'll definitely be making this again. Oh, and used cheddar instead of parmesan as we had it, still delicious.

Love this simple meal- third time I have made it now. Tasted and looked beautiful on a bed of spinach.

This was great! I've never made a risotto before I'd heard they're really time consuming and easy to get wrong but this was so easy! I fried up some chicken breast and put that in with it and reduced the amount of bacon and also added some mushrooms. After reading the comments I cooked in the oven for 25 mins and was perfect. Annoyingly I forgot to put the Parmesan in but it still tasted lovely! A good base to add lots of exciting ingredients, I will definitely use this recipe again.

Fantastic recipe. I added mushrooms when cooking the onions and butter which worked well. I also added some black pepper when stirring in the parmesan.
Can definitely recommend this!!

Even picky hubby cleared his plate :) Didn't have white wine, parmesan or tomatoes so used rose wine, Sundried tomatoes and cheddar - gave a really rich flavour which was gorgeous! Its also something I would make for a dinner party! I would say try this recipe at least once! easy peasy - for some reason wont let me rate this but it is defo 5stars!
