Rated 4 out of 5 by from Forget the weeknight--this would be great for company! Forget the weeknight--this would be great for company! What a great way to enjoy risotto without all the fattening butter and cream. You don't even miss it. This turned out great and my family loved it. I added a little garlic and white wine, and next time I will increase the amount of rice and broth. It seemed like there was too little rice in proportion to the other ingredients in the risotto.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OK, so its not real risotto, but has become one of my go to recipes. OK, so its not real risotto, but has become one of my go to recipes. Keep shrimp in the freezer or substitute the seafood you have on hand (its really good with scallops), dried mushrooms in the pantry and I always have the rest of the ingredients in the cupboard. My guys say its one of the best quickie dinners I can make.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband doesn't like rice so I used Orzo instead. My husband doesn't like rice so I used Orzo instead. It was great. I also used canned mushrooms and they worked well. This recipe's a "keeper"! (I previously rated this and accidently said I used risotti...that was a mistake, it was orzo)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used baby portebellos instead of shitake mushrooms. I used baby portebellos instead of shitake mushrooms. They have an earthier flavor so I would suggest using the shitake or crimini mushrooms instead. My husband love it and he is a picky eater. Usually a meat and potatoes man!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made this recipe many times. I have made this recipe many times. It is delicious. To save time I keep cooked shrimp (old bay seasoning recipe) cooked mushrooms and onions in the freezer. Then it is a cinch to throw together on a busy day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh man, do they love this one! Oh man, do they love this one! Make it interesting by experimenting with different mushrooms. Leftovers are great to take to work to 'nuke for lunch, however the shrimp will toughen up a little if reheated too long.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good... Pretty good... I forgot to thaw the shrimp so I defrosted them on the fish setting in the microwave. We also don't like mushrooms so we just left them out and it was really tastey!
