Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Fry the bacon pieces in an ovenproof pan or casserole dish for 3-5 mins until golden and crisp. Stir in the onion and butter and cook for 3-4 mins until soft. Tip in the rice and mix well until coated. Pour over the wine if using and cook for 2 mins until absorbed.

  2. Add the cherry tomatoes and the hot stock, then give the rice a quick stir. Cover with a tightly fitting lid and bake for 18 mins until just cooked. Stir through most of the parmesan and serve sprinkled with the remainder.

This was lovely, & super-easy to make. Like some others I'd never done a baked risotto before but it came out perfectly after an extra 2-3 minutes in the oven, added a little extra wine to ensure creaminess!

I couldnt get my bacon as crispy as the picture (prepacked stuff has so much water in it) I stirred through some baby spinach that was lurking in the fridge in the last five minutes but it did take longer to cook and I finished it off on the hob for speed. Very tasty (and 'normal' for a change according to my 17 yearold son)

Serves 4 children! My friend and I polished this off between us quite easily (and very satisfactorily) but this will not serve 4 adults, ever!

Found this recipe really very nice. I added Chicken breasts cut into small chunks and also when serving a little pepper sauce. It was great and the family loved it.

This recipe is delicious and SO easy. Just the thing when you've been out and want something quick and filling. Everyone who has tried it has loved it.

Fantastic recipe! I love risotto but never make it because I can't be bothered to stand over a pan stirring it. This is the perfect solution. Also, was the quickest meal in the world to make and it came out a perfect consistency. I used the above measurements but found it only fed me and my boyfriend so would make more next time. I also found that it needed 25 mins in the oven rather than 18. I used the original recipe ingredients but you could easily add lots of other ingredients to vary it and spice it up. Fab meal and will be making very often I think!!

Can't praise this risotto enough. Really quick and easy and no need to stand at the hob stirring! I did find it needed more like 30 mins in the oven but was then deliciously soft and creamy. My 3yr old enjoyed it as much as me and hubby. Think this will quickly become a family favourite but would also be a good recipe to serve to friends as looks more impressive than the effort involved!
