  • Once cooked, add the peas and the parmesan cheese and mix well.
  • Serve hot.


I have a sear and stew slow cooker which can go on the hob, this is ideal for this recipe as there is no extra pan to wash!
This risotto is a great base, I added some cooked flaked salmon but you could add extra vegetables, or cooked chicken, bacon or ham would also work really well.
