  1. In a large saucepan, bring the vegetable stock to a simmer. While the stock is heating, drain the sun-dried tomatoes and reserve the oil. Chop the tomatoes coarsely and set them aside.
  2. In a large frying pan, warm 2 tablespoons of oil from the tomatoes, add onion and saute until translucent; about 6 minutes.
  3. Add rice to the frying pan and stir until white spots appear in the center of the grains; about 1 minute. Spoon a ladleful of vegetable stock into the frying pan and cook the mixture on low until all the stock is absorbed; about 2 minutes. Continue adding the stock, a ladleful at a time until the rice is tender and the mixture is creamy, approximately 20 to 25 minutes.
  4. Add the mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, 2 tablespoons of the remaining oil from the tomatoes, chopped basil, and salt and pepper. Mix well and serve.

We really liked this recipe, but made the following changes: 1. Added chicken (I wanted to make this a main dish) 2. Used gorgonzola instead of mozzarella cheese I will definitely use this ...

This was well worth the effort. However, I would recommend using less cheese as it was a bit overpowering. I also used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth and I was extremely pleased with...

This was good, however I needed more than stock than what the recipe called for. Also, 2 cups of cheese is WAY too much. I'd say maybe a half cup total would have been plenty.

Though the flavor was very good (I'm a lover of sun dried tomatoes), the rice did not cook as was expected in the recipe. I ended up using 6 cups of vegetable stock plus an additional cup of wa...

Simple recipe to follow! This was my first attempt at a risotto.. I found the prep time a bit longer than indicated and also found that the rice took longer to cook than stated. I needed extra l...

I was very pleased with this recipe. I am an impatient cook so I just dumped some broth in, let it soak up and the rice was still a bit chewy so I added some more broth ice cubes until they wer...
