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.

Great recipe, perfect for when you don't have the time to do it the traditional way, I would say it is ALMOST as good as the real deal because even though my boyfriend loved it he could still tell the difference between this one and the real one!

Enjoyed this easy meal. Made it exactly as recipe, but it took 45 minutes in the oven. My 5 year old thought it was delicious. Would make it again, and try it with other ingredients too.

Brilliant! I used half a tin of chopped tomatoes as I didn't have any cherry toms and grated mature cheddar cheese instead of parmesan. It was delicious and simple...I will definitely be trying this again!

Made this a few times as instructed however didn't have toms or wine to put in when i made it recently so used a tin of chopped toms instead - worked equally as well if not better for kids

I wanted to make this risotto but I realised I had no lid for my ovenproof dish... so I ended up cooking it in the usual way, and it was still very good!
