Preparation

In small saucepan, bring stock to simmer over medium heat; reduce heat to low and keep warm.

In separate saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook onion, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in rice; cook, stirring, until well coated.

Add 3 cups (750 mL) of the stock, 1/2 cup (125 mL) at a time, cooking and stirring until each addition is absorbed before adding next. Stir in red peppers and remaining stock; cook, stirring, until creamy and rice is tender. (Risotto should be moist but not soupy; total cooking time is about 20 minutes.)

Remove from heat. Stir in cheese and pepper; let stand for 2 minutes.
