Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Reynolds® Oven Bag Tips: • It is important that the sides of your pan are at least 2 inches high for this recipe. • Arborio rice cooks to a creamy texture that is great in Risotto and rice pudding. • Look for Arborio rice in the rice section or in the International Foods section of grocery stores. • Crimini Mushrooms are sometimes labeled as "baby bellas". They have a browner color, firmer texture and stronger flavor than white button mushrooms.
