Easy & Fast Tomato And Basil Risotto

One of my fave ingredient to cook is Risotto. Mostly for its similarity to Filipino dishes. Viand combined with rice. Risotto is also one of the few dish that my son loves to eat. He is a fuzzy eater. So I am trying to serve this dish often in different forms. One of the new recipe that I did was a really fast and easy TOMATO AND BASIL RISOTTO which I found from Sunrise Senior Living website. The dish was done by their chefs which are there to make sure that meals are healthy! Why don't you check out their blog as well as they post about how one can stay healthy. What I love about this recipe is that the ingredients is already available in my pantry so I can whip up a meal anytime! It is fast and healthy and hearty too! My son loved the creaminess of this dish and my husband loves the texture of the roasted veggies! Me? I just love that its easy to cook!
