This rice NEVER got soft enough to eat. After more than an hour stirring and stirring and having to add 2 full quarts of broth, it still wasn't "al dente". BAD recipe. Don't bother cooking it unless you like to waste your time.
The risotto took quite a bit longer to cook , probably about an hour or so , but it looked beautiful and tasted amazing ! Will make again especially in the fall w the gorgeous colors !
