This delicious risotto is so quick and easy, you'll never go back to making risotto by standing at the stove stirring and stirring again! You can make this in an Instant Pot® or a standard pressure cooker. Top with more Parmesan cheese, if desired.

I used ramps (wild leeks) instead of onion, green garlic instead of garlic cloves, and spinach (with stems removed - not baby spinach). This was a delicious and easy way to use these spring veggies. Read More

I thought it very bland as written. I added diced ham, fresh basil, mushrooms, And Fire-roasted tomatoes instead of regular diced, and still found it lacked flavor. Hubby said it was good, but I think he was just being nice. Read More

The risotto was perfect texture, but I found it to be very bland. I should have trippled the flavors for this recipe. I would make it again and follow the steps exactly, but increase all favlors. Read More
