Mushroom Risotto with Peas: Classy Comfort Food

mushroom risotto peas

I have a weakness for amazing risotto, it’s hard for me to resist ordering it when I see it on a menu.  This is my husband’s favorite dish to pair with lamb and a nice glass of wine.  It’s rich, creamy and full of flavor.  Giada De Laurentiis has a fabulous fool proof recipe that everybody should try.  Patience is needed to master the delicious flavor and texture of a great risotto.  This dish needs to be constantly stirred and requires a lot of attention – it is definitely cooked with love and is pure comfort on a plate.  

I’ve made this for numerous dinner parties and there are never any left overs.  It is also the side dish that my husband request every Valentine’s Day and birthday. (Although this year he has requested Osso Bucco and Saffron Risotto – so my recipe search begins!)  The mushrooms give the risotto a woodsy color and nutty taste.  You can’t go wrong with this dish…it looks and taste amazing!

    That sounds like a great idea! Extra protein & another layer of texture – I think I will have to try this variation. Thank you for the suggestion!
