Tip in the rice and mix well until coated. Pour over the wine if using and cook for 2 mins until absorbed.

Made this quickly for lunch to try it out. Didnt have all the exact ingredients but it still worked. No bacon but added chooped mushrooms with the onion. No white wine so used Rose. No cherry tomotoes but used chopped salad tomatoes and some sundried tomatoes I had left in the fridge. It took a little longer in the oven but not too much. I think it turned out well and super easy. Definitely a basic receipe that you can swap and change depending on what you have in and what you fancy.

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.
