Microwave Risotto!

I have no picture for this recipe.  Partially because the lighting in my kitchen is questionable, and partially because I think this recipe just stands for itself.  Any of you who have ever made risotto on the stove top will kick yourself for somehow never having known about this before (unless of course, you just wanted to build up your arm muscles…)  This is truly amazing… you can make risotto IN THE MICROWAVE!!!

I’m not kidding.  Same amount of time, but drastically decreased stirring and it came out sooooo sooooooooo tasty!  Make it tonight for dinner and people will ooooooo and aaaahhh :)
