Buon Italia's Ricetta Risotto ai Quattro Formaggi

Dear Friends,
I hope everyone had a fantastic New Year celebration. I relaxed this year and visited my family in New England and then came home with my husband to spend a quiet weekend at home with our cat Abby. I was very happy to see my cats Puffy and Tigger at my family's home. We opened up presents there, cooked together, and watched movies for about four days.
One of the places I shop at annually for gifts for my family is at Buon Italia in New York City located in Chelsea Market on the west side. They have so many wonderful shops there for everyone on your list! Everything from stylish apparel to delicious grocery items baked goods. Buon Italia offers a vast array of fine, imported Italian grocery items, from olive oil and caviar to coffee, tea and cookies. It is sometimes so difficult to choose what you'd like to purchase, if only you had a wheel barrel to wheel everything you'd like home!
Below is a recipe I found on their website that I'd like to share with you. It looks so delicious to make as a side dish for dinner. I'll be making it myself very soon!
Try it at home and tell me how you like it.
(Rice with Four Types of Cheese)

300gr rice
200gr soft cheese
1 oz (30g) mozzarella cheese—cubed
80gr butter

Add all cheese and mix together.
Season with salt, when rice is tender take away from heat, add butter and grated parmesan.
Mix well and serve.
