vegetable broth and basil. Continue cooking until mixture
comes to a boil (2 to 3 minutes). Reduce heat to low. Cover;

Stir in green beans. Cover; continue cooking, stirring
occasionally, until rice is tender and all liquid is absorbed
Stir in tomatoes and remaining butter; continue cooking until

Season to taste with salt and pepper.

TIP: Arborio rice is used because of its higher starch level
that gives this recipe its creamy texture.
