First, add olive oil, shallots, garlic clove, salt and pepper on medium heat to a pot. Mix and stir for 2 minutes.
Next, add rice and toast for 2 minutes. Make sure the rice just becomes translucent and not brown.
Now add 1/2 cup of hot broth and mix until the broth is absorbed. Continue to repeat until the rice looks like porridge. The process should take 18 minutes.
Finally, add the butter and Parmesan. Turn off the heat and mix until butter is fully melted. Enjoy!
