One Pot Parmesan Risotto


This is the easiest and most delicious one pot parmesan risotto recipe! It’s creamy, rich and simple to make!

A bowl of hot, cheesy risotto is the way to my heart! If you don’t know what risotto is, it’s a Northern Italian rice dish that uses stock, butter, cheese and wine to make the creamiest bowl of rice. It’s truly one of my favorite dishes and I wanted to share this super easy One Pot Parmesan Risotto with you all to make in your own homes.

For this One Pot Parmesan Risotto we used white wine, organic chicken stock, Arborio rice, butter, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and a little bit of fresh thyme. of course, we drank a little wine while preparing the risotto too! It goes very well with a sauvignon blanc. Yum!

How do you make risotto?

The reason why this risotto recipe is easy to make is because you do not have to hand stir it for 20 minutes over the stovetop! Some risotto recipes can be a bit of a hassle, but this recipe is great because it’s easy and you don’t have to “babysit” the risotto. The rice and most of the chicken stock go in a dutch oven pot and into the oven to cook, then the remaining stock, cheese, butter and wine go in after and you only stir for just a few minutes, then serve! How easy is that?!

Risotto is also very versatile. You can add in mushrooms, peas, different types of cheeses, seasonings and fresh herbs. To make seafood risotto we placed some brown butter scallops over the top. It was delicious!

Here is a really good recipe for brown butter scallops. One tip for making these, make sure you get dried scallops so they brown easier. You will love them!

    Made this for dinner tonight. Absolutely amazing. I served it with grilled asparagus and the BF ate it right up and added it to his top 10 meals that I’ve ever made.
