Ingredients

  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 can (about 14 ounces) fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 2/3 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked arborio rice
  • 1 can (about 10 3/4 ounces) reduced-fat reduced-sodium condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 3 cups packed stemmed spinach, chopped
  • 6 tablespoons chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

Coat 3-quart saucepan with cooking spray. Cook and stir mushrooms, basil, garlic, and pepper over high heat 3 to 4 minutes or until mushrooms are tender.

Add broth, water, rice, and soup; cook and stir until well blended and mixture begins to boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer gently 12 minutes, stirring twice during cooking, or until rice is just tender but still firm.

Stir in spinach; cover and let stand 5 to 7 minutes or until spinach is wilted.

Sprinkle with walnuts and cheese before serving.

Yield: 8 servings. Serving size: 1 cup risotto.
