ease: 3/5. As with all risottos you have to constantly stir it to stop rice sticking to the bottom, so you have to be at the stove for 25mins.
prep time: 10mins. To get ingredients ready. Chopping onions takes the longest, to shorten time buy pre-grated Parmesan.
cooking time: 30mins. 5mins to soften onions and coat rice, and 25mins to cook risotto. I also put on a lid after adding butter and Parmesan and let it sit for a few minutes.
Total: 40mins. All hands on.
taste: 4/5. I have made this recipe quite a few times. It is my favourite risotto recipe that I have made. It has always been consistent and is pretty foolproof. Tonight I doubled the quantity and it was a little more gluggy than usual, but still good. Doubling the recipe serves 5 well.
would I make it again: YES. Made this tons of times already. Haven't had anyone not like it so far.
