We're not gonna lie: We're fans of all kinds of creamy, Parmesan-cheesy risotto. But this one—made with bacon and sweet peas—is beyond wow-worthy.

    Tasty!! At first I thought the rice was supposed to be instant rice based on the 3 minute cooking time, but it actually DOES absorb the broth without a problem. I only used 2 cans of 14.5 oz. broth and it turned out fantastic. Wishing I had more bacon on hand to put in it! Very easy and quick to make, also makes quite a bit for extra helpings or leftovers.
