Nothing says LOVE like Risotto - at least in our house.

Several times a week, I try to shoot for complete vegetarian meals.  There are a few reasons why I do this.  One of the reasons is that it’s good for us.  Another reason is that it is good for the planet.  The impact to the environment to raise cattle is quite costly....
