Broccoli Cheddar Risotto

We love risotto so I was really intrigued  by this recipe! Luckily it was awesome and we will be eating it again for sure! This recipe is adapted from Big Bear's Wife.

3 tbsp butter
1 cup arborio rice
3 cups chicken broth
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
3 cups chopped broccoli
salt and pepper to taste

Steam the broccoli until tender and set to the side. Melt the butter in the pan. Pour the chicken broth into a pot and heat over low. Add the rice and let cook for 3 minutes. Add 1 cup of chicken broth to the pan and let cook until almost all of the liquid is gone. Add another cup and repeat then add 3 /4 cup and let it cook down.  Once the liquid is almost gone stir in the cheese and add 1/4 cup of chicken broth.  Once the cheese is melted stir in the broccoli and let heat through season with salt and pepper  then serve.
