    • Yeah, only three stars. It was just so heavy… Now that I’ve had time to watch it “cure,” I’d try cooking it a little less than the recipe says. I’m not sure if that would help, but give it a try. Arborio rice is the type of rice used to prepare risotto. The package of rice I bought actually said risotto on it, larger than the part that said Arborio rice. It’s a short grain rice and generally takes a longer time to prepare than other types of rice. If you make it, let me know how it turns out!!
