I found the basics for this recipe in the “Food that Schmecks” cookbook written by the late Edna Stabler. This recipe for cheese scalloped potatoes is one of our favourite dishes, both for use at home and for potluck meals!
Risotto does require a bit more effort than just opening a can or using a mix, but the end result is great. Have a look at the recipe and see if it tempts your taste buds. We tried it, and really liked it.
