Very creamy risotto without the hassle of constant stirring. Great for a spanish tapas menu.

Uncannily "similar" to Silvana Franco's recipe on BBC Food website. Which came first ????

Very easy to cook in any quantity and always a winner. Family favourite.

Had this a few times now and it always goes down very well. Rich flavours from the Chorizo which seems a large quantity when adding but it carries it off. So easy to cook as well. Recommended

This is one of my fav dishes. It is a Sylvano Franco recipe which I have used stacks of times. It is easy, quick to prepare and delicious. Have used with family, just us and when friends for dinner and always get compliments. Well worth a try. I don't add prawns due to allergy but add some chicken breasts instead to top up as well. Easy to vary too.

A firm favourite here! Second time i made it, I added sweet red peppers and button mushrooms withteh cherry tomatoes, and left out the prawns. Both versions are lovely!

I did a slightly less rich version of this tonight (leaving out chicken and prawns), and it was fantastic. Very easy, really tasty, and endless variations possible depending on season or what you've got in the fridge. Highly recommended!

I haven't tried this recipe but want to try it in the next few days. I have one question though, do you cover the roasting tin? I normally put a lid on a casserole dish when I cook a 'rice dish' in the oven.

YUM YUM! Quick and easy to make and delicous to eat, what more do you want?

Tried this last night and I'm always cautious trying new dishes, especially as we had guests over, but it was great. It is rare for me to finish a meal and think that there is nothing I would change, but with this recipe I wouldn't change a thing. I cooked it in a Le Creuset caserole dish and it worked fine.
