Portabella Mushroom Risotto

In an effort to use the chives from our CSA box, and the portabella mushrooms in our fridge, I made this recipe tonight.  I wasn't brave enough to try it with mushrooms because I really dislike mushrooms, but Chris cannot stop raving about it.  If I remember correctly, he used the words sublime and divine to describe it.

The only modification I made to the recipe is that I used only 8oz of portabella mushrooms, and no white mushrooms.  I also found that I didn't need all the broth that was called for.

When I buy dry white wine for a risotto recipe, I always buy the cheapest wine possible.  If the remainder is drinkable, that's a bonus :)  I'm happy to say that tonight's chardonnay was more than just drinkable, it was quite good!  Especially when paired with my mushroom-less risotto.
