Buddy V's mushroom Risotto

Buddy’s Mushroom Risotto

I love Buddy V from Cake Boss, and when I found his video on youtube, he got me hooked on the idea.  The bummer is that his recipe on his YouTube channel is not correct, so I watched what he did and improvised a bit, but it’s mostly true to his video.  And no parsley!  I hate the hassle of buying parsley just for one meal, to just then get moldy in the fridge.

I have made some adjustments to this recipe, so it’s not exactly his. I’m still writing up the recipe below
