I loved this recipe! I never knew what Risotto was but I love nuts and I was searching for a recipe that contained some type of nut. Well I found this recipe and although there was no picture it just sounded delicious. It was easy to make, my family and I all loved it and I just want to thank you for posting such a great recipe. We will definitely be having this for dinner again!
