- 1 cup Arborio rice
- 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup white wine (optional)
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- Fresh parsley for garnish
- In a large, deep skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.
- Add the Arborio rice to the skillet and stir to coat it with the melted butter and garlic. Cook for another 2 minutes, allowing the rice to toast slightly.
- If using white wine, pour it into the skillet and stir until it’s mostly absorbed by the rice.
- Begin adding the chicken or vegetable broth, one ladleful at a time, stirring constantly and allowing the liquid to be absorbed before adding more. Continue this process until the rice is creamy and cooked to your desired doneness (usually about 18-20 minutes).
- Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese and heavy cream until the risotto is creamy and the cheese is melted. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
- Serve hot, garnished with fresh parsley and extra Parmesan cheese if desired.
