Giada's Lemony Shrimp Risotto

by Laura

Have you been scared off from trying to cook risotto? I have but after making this version from Giada, I don't see what the big deal is. This recipe took a while to complete and I made quite a mess of the kitchen, but the level of difficulty was low. The lemon makes it a refreshing choice for summer, and you could increase the amount of arugula to sneak in more vegetables. Highly recommend!
