Ingredients

  • 1 cup Sorrento® Part Skim Mozzarella, diced
  • 1 large Onion
  • 2 Carrots
  • 6 Shitake Mushrooms
  • 12 Button Mushrooms
  • 1 3/4 pt. Vegetable Stock
  • 3 tbs Olive Oil
  • 2 cloves Garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 cup White Wine, optional
  • 11 oz. Risotto Rice

Directions

Finely chop onion and carrots separately and set aside. Cut mushrooms into thin slices and set aside. Bring stock to a boil in a medium pot and lower to a simmer. Meanwhile, in a large pan, heat 3 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add carrots and garlic and stir for a minute. Add mushrooms and cook for another minute. Add rice quickly, until it is well-coated. Stir in wine and simmer for 1 minute. Begin to add the stock, one ladle at a time. Continue to cook and stir for 20 minutes. The risotto should be slightly creamy. Turn off the heat. Mix in the mozzarella.
