Mushroom Risotto

On a whim I threw some light italian dressing in a risotto recently. It is fast becoming my favorite way to cook risotto.

Mushroom Risotto

1/4 cup sliced mushrooms — baby portabella
cooking spray
1 cup rice, short-grain — Aborio
1/4 cup light italian salad dressing
water — hot
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
salt and pepper — to taste
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Bring a large pot of water to boil and keep warm. Cook the mushrooms in the cooking spray on stovetop a bit to brown, then add rice and cook until barely golden. Start to add water 1/2 cup at a time and add italian dressing. Let boil down stirring and continue adding hot water 1/2 cup at a time and boiling down and stirring for about 18-20 minutes.

Test to see if rice is al dente then add cream and cheese. Salt and pepper to taste. Top with parsley to serve.
