Mushroom & Spinach Risotto Brings on the Flavor

Mushroom and Spinach Risotto-promo

Each box of risotto contains a seasoning packet, but you’ll need only one for this recipe; save the other for flavoring soup stock or another grain dish. If boxed Creamy Parmesan Risotto isn’t available, purchase two regular-flavor risotto boxes; use 2 tablespoons butter instead of 1 tablespoon olive oil in step 2, and stir in ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese in step 3.
