    Excellent rice dish. Must mention that you must use Arborio rice in order to achieve maximum creaminess! I substituted chicken instead of vegetable broth and omitted the celery. My friends raved all the same.  -  24 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this for a dinner party, and it makes way more than four servings! All of it was eaten, though, and everyone thought I was magic or something. I did used skim milk and fat free half and half instead of whole milk and heavy cream, and it was plenty rich and creamy. Definitely worth the effort if you want to impress a date or a dinner party!  -  21 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    A good recipe overall. Use half the cream. The 5 cups of broth are more of a maximum amount you will need - use common sense and stop adding broth when the rice is cooked. I used chicken broth instead and added chicken.  -  07 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
