This rice dish is similar to the Italian risotto. To make this more authentic Italian, use a short grain rice, and add the liquid a bit at a time, waiting for the rice to absorb the liquid each time.

DIRECTIONS

Fry rice in butter or margarine in large kettle until lightly browned. Add remaining ingredients; simmer 30 minutes or until all liquid has been absorbed. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
