Learn How to Make Risotto with this easy risotto recipe. Risotto is one of those dishes often seen on Italian restaurant menus, but rarely made in home kitchens. This risotto recipe is shockingly simple to make. It can be served as a side dish with an Italian entree or can be a meal in itself. Make this risotto for your next dinner party and people will think you learned to cook in the Italian countryside.

Serves6 People


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 2 cups Arborio rice
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 5 cups chicken broth, more if needed
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Heat oil in a large pot over low to medium heat and add the chopped onions. Cook for 3 minutes or until the onions are soft.

  2. Heat the chicken broth in a separate pot and keep hot.

  3. Add the Arborio rice to the softened onions and stir for 2 minutes.

  4. Add the white wine and cook to let the alcohol evaporate.

  5. Add the hot broth, about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring frequently. After adding each cup of hot chicken broth, cook until the liquid is almost fully absorbed.

  6. Continue to add chicken broth 1/2 cup at a time, until all of the broth has been used or you achieve the desired texture and rice is cooked through. Turn off the heat.

  7. Add the butter and shredded Parmesan cheese. Add additional cheese or butter to your liking. Stir to combine with the risotto.

  8. Transfer to a large bowl. Serve immediately.

Loved it! Risotto is so tasty and not as hard to make as I first though. I make it all the time now! I like to add peas and prosciutto.

This was the first time I had risotto, and I loved it! I will definitely make this in the future.
