Our convenient starter makes it easy to whip up authentic Italian-style risotto at home without the need for slow, constant stirring. For rich, velvety risotto, we've paired classic Arborio rice with earthy black truffles, porcini mushrooms and aged Parmesan cheese, seasoning the blend with garlic and aromatic herbs. Simply combine with chicken or vegetable stock, simmer in the oven, then finish your risotto with butter and Parmesan cheese.

  • Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tasty but salty We prepared this risotto last night. It was very easy to do in the oven, and came out very creamy, just as though we had cooked on the stove top. It was flavorful, but much too salty, even when made with salt-free butter and no additional salt added (610 mg or 27% of daily allowance for 1/4 c). Cut back on the salt and it will be five stars.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Salty It smells great but it was so salty i threw it all out. I used low sodium chicken stock and unsalted butter. Awful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved the ease of making this delicious dish.. It may take a little longer in the oven, but it beats standing and stirring for 45 minutes..One jar makes 2 casseroles.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flavor Fail Purchased about a month ago online. My past history with the risotto line from WS has been good. Not with this one it called for 4 1/2 cups of chicken broth and the time is 25 to 30 minutes but still at 37 minutes it is still soup. Finally at 52 minutes it is done. I did use a oven therm to calculate my oven temp which was only over by 2 degrees. But I could live with that but the taste is what got this such a poor rating there is no not one bit of parm taste to it or truffle unless you bite into these dark little pieces that are sprinkled through out. This was a fail even with ease to make due to time and taste this needs to go back to try again. I have made risotto from scratch hundreds of times and this was not a good alternative at all. But I will say the other ones are such as the spinach and the mushroom
