Easy Parmesan Risotto

Sheryl Faulkner


Don't let the word risotto scare you - this is made in the oven and is incredibly easy-maybe not a traditional risotto, but it's pretty close!If I'm not serving it with something lemony, then I like to add a splash of fresh lemon juice to the rice at the end. This came from Ina Garten, thru our local paper. I've made it countless times and it never disappoints.

How to Make Easy Parmesan Risotto


  1. Place rice and 4 cups of broth in Dutch oven. Cover and bake 45 mins, until liquid is absorbed and rice is al dente.
  2. Remove from oven, add remaining 1 cup broth, parmesan, wine, butter, s&p and stir vigorously for 2-3 mins until the rice is thick and creamy.
    (this is where I add fresh lemon juice, if desired)
  3. Add peas and stir until heated through. Serve warm.
