  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Onion 1 Large, chopped
  Arborio rice 1 Cup (16 tbs) (White)
  Hot stock 5 Cup (80 tbs)
  Parmesan cheese 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), grated
Directions

Heat olive oil in a heavy nonstick 2-quart pot.
Saute onion in oil until translucent.
Add rice and stir rice until grains are coated with oil.
Add 1 cup hot stock or water, stirring until liquid is absorbed.
