    I’d always see Chef Gordon Ramsay make risotto on his show, and wanted to try it so badly! When I went on a cruise they served mushroom risotto and I was so excited! lol It was delicious!

    Honestly, I didn’t know you could buy risotto in a package like that. When I shop I don’t look around, I go in and want to get out quickly. I will eat it much more often now that I know it’s available like this. One of the reasons I really like blogs…I find out about all kinds of new things.

    This Recipe is so Lovely looking and I know it quite Delicious if you like shrimp! Most people do. Unfortunately I do not. The only fish I eat is tuna fish and it has to have mayonaise and onion in it served as a salad or on a Bun or Bread. I am wondering if I could substitue Chicken Breast chopped into smaller pcs in it? It is a very quick meal so thats awesome!!

    This looks super easy and a recipe I think my kids would like. My only concern would be the sodium level in the Knorr packet. I have to watch my sodium and sometimes these types of mixes are really high in sodium.

    Wow, this recipe has me DROOLING! I would probably substitute the shrimp with garlic chicken, but I’m definitely going to try this! I’m heading to the grocery store in a bit and I’ll be keeping my eye out for the Knorr Selects Four Cheese Risotto now! Thanks for sharing!
