Reviewed Mushroom Risotto with Peas

Oct 12, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

this was absolutely wonderful! Could absolutely serve at a party with foodies. Rich flavor. I did add the water I used to soak the mushrooms in as part of the liquid and didn't have parm on hand and it was delicious! Next time I will be careful to add the liquid a little more frequently as I think I was on the verge of overcooking the rice. Tradi...

I liked this recipe. It was simple and easy. I did add extra mushrooms at the beginning and a little white wine at the very end just to make some more sauce. The taste was good, but not remarkable. I served it with Giada's mushroom risotto which was a fantastic backdrop - it may have even taken away from the 'main star'. The chicken was a little ...

Goes ...

This was absolutely fantastic! The combination of flavors were wonderful. A must try. I used basamati rice rather than couscous and it was delicious.

Your guests will l...

this recipe is absolutely fantastic! It is so inexpensive, quick and easy - goes right to the top of my list. The flavors are very nice, not overbearing, yet exotic and wonderful. I used Israeli couscous and the larger variety really soaked up the flavor of the sauce - perfect. Would be great for a party!""

I absolutely love italian cream cake and was very excited to try this recipe.

I doubled the icing to make enough to cover the cake, added 4TB of cream & cut the sugar in about half for the icing - it turned out very nice & not super sweet. I added the sweetened coconut flakes to the outside edge of the cake & sprinkled chopped pecans...
