Creamy Risotto with Tuna

Sometimes I just crave the classic american flavors of tuna casserole.  This dish, a risotto-version of classic tuna casserole provides all of the creaminess of the classic mid-century dish without all of the dairy.  You could also make this dish with salmon instead of tuna if you wanted to class it up a bit.  One 4-6 ounce filet, broiled and flaked would dress this up and make it suitable for entertaining.  You could even use a good quality canned salmon.  If using salmon, I would omit the cheese or replace it with a few tablespoons of cream or half and half if you are looking for a little more richness.

I like this served with a nice green salad or a side of roasted broccoli.  This recipe serves two very generously or three moderately.
