  • I read this recipe and realized it is missing some directions! I assume the broth is added to the rice BEFORE putting it in the oven! Does it need to be hot, like when making the risotto on the stovetop, and will this come out as creamy as the risotto cooked on the stovetop that a cup at a time is - 1/15/13
