For Original Risotto, place 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the butter in Rockcrok® (2.5-qt./2.35-L) Everyday Pan. Heat over medium heat 3-5 minutes or until melted, stirring to cover surface of Pan. Cut onion into chunks. Using Food Chopper, finely chop onion. Add onion, garlic pressed with Garlic Press, and rice to Pan.
Cook, uncovered, 3-4 minutes or until rice is lightly toasted, stirring frequently with Small Mix ‘N Scraper®.
Using Microplane® Adjustable Fine Grater, grate Parmesan; set aside.
Remove Pan from heat. Stir stock and pepper into rice. Microwave, covered, on HIGH 15-17 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
Meanwhile, prepare Add-Ins (optional).
Remove Pan from microwave; stir in Parmesan, remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter and Add-Ins. Cover; let stand 5 minutes.

Arborio rice is Italian short-grain rice that can be found in the rice or ethnic section of most grocery stores. Arborio rice works best in this recipe, but if it’s not available, you can substitute with long-grain white rice.
Vegetable broth can be substituted for the chicken broth.
