In a wide, heavy-bottomed pot, melt butter over medium heat and add Saffron & Chanterelle Risotto Mix. Stir for 1 min., or until mixture is coated in butter and aromatic. While stirring, gradually pour in 3 cups hot water. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer (uncovered) for 15 to 17 min., or until liquid is mostly absorbed, stirring occasionally. Increase heat to medium and add remaining 1 cup hot water. Stir constantly for 2 to 3 min., or until rice is tender and mixture is creamy. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan cheese. If the risotto is too thick, loosen with a splash of hot water; if it is too thin, stir in more Parmesan. Serve immediately.
Top with: Additional shredded Parmesan cheese and salt & pepper to taste
Tip: you can use the leftovers to make addictive Arancini, crispy rice balls that pair perfectly with our Rustic Red Sauce Spice 'n Easy.
With leftovers: For arancini, form cold risotto into balls, roll in flour, dip in beaten egg, and coat in bread crumbs. Fry in 375 degree oil until golden brown.
