Shelley Adina's Slapdash Risotto
OK, here's the easiest risotto recipe I've ever used. It may be simple, but even finicky teenagers like it :)

1 TBSP butter
1 TBSP olive oil
1 large shallot, chopped
1/2 glass dry white wine
1 14-oz can chicken broth
3/4 cup arborio rice
Grated asiago cheese

Saute shallots in butter and oil until golden. Add rice and saute
until lightly browned (2 minutes). Add wine and cook until absorbed (1-2 minutes). Add half of broth a little at a time; rice will absorb it as it cooks. Then add remainder of broth all at once and bring to boil. Turn heat to low, cover, and simmer until tender (around 20 minutes). Sprinkle generously with parmesan or asiago cheese and serve. Serves 2.
