Who loves Risotto?  Who doesn't like to stand at the stove stirring for 40 minutes?....me!  I saw Ina Garten make this recipe on her show and gave it a try.  
Oh my gosh, it really does turn out perfectly and it was so simple!  My kids really liked it and my skeptical husband did too.  
That is a Win Win in my book..


1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
5 cups simmering chicken stock, preferably homemade, divided
(I used 1 can beef stock and 2 cans chicken, each can is about 2 cups)
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup dry white wine
( I did not use wine, just used 1/2 cup extra stock)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup frozen peas
(didn't have any so didn't add)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Place the rice and 4 cups of the chicken stock in a Dutch oven, such as Le Creuset. 

Cover and bake for 45 minutes, until most of the liquid is absorbed and the rice is al dente.

 Remove from the oven, add the remaining cup of chicken stock, the Parmesan, wine, butter, salt, and pepper, and stir vigorously for 2 to 3 minutes, until the rice is thick and creamy. 

Add the peas and stir until heated through. Serve hot.
I am sure you could stir in anything of your choice and it would be a hit.
