I’m fairly certain trained chefs would be horrified by a recipe for Risotto that involves the microwave! But when you see how easy this is to make delicious creamy risotto you won’t care what they would say. There’s no standing over the stove stirring for this one. You add the ingredients set the microwave and pretty much walk away. Enjoy! ♥
