    I made the Tomato and Basil Risotto from the latest SW magazine and it was AMAZING!!!!

    I have never made risotto before but it turned out really well. OH agreed and wants me to make it again! (must be good if he likes it!) :)

    Thanks!!

    I've made a similar one but the recipe came from the Good Food website. I like a bit of chilli or Tabasco added and then add some mozzarella at the end (grated or chopped) it melts and is lovely and stringy

    I'm going to do this tonight. Do you think it would work with some mushrooms thrown in as well?

    I think it will be ok, you can put whatever you want in I would have thought just as long as the mushroom dont go too mushy. Perhaps put them in closer to the end of cooking?!?!? ;)

    Didn't put mushrooms in it. DH and DD didn't like it as there is no meat in and to be honest we all found it tasteless:( For us it would have been better with chilli in. DH put loads of hot pepper sauce on it!

    There is a recipe on the SW site somewhere for beetroot risotto - it is REALLY flavoursome! I whack a tiny bit of white wine in mine also, only about three tablespoons!
