Risotto with Asparagus
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 30 min.
I love risotto! That being said, I did tweak this recipe just a bit. I substituted shallots for the onions. , And diced the asparagus and steamed in the microwave for 5-minutes on high power in a microwave steamer. Then used half olive oil and half butter. Thumbs up!
I love risotto and have made this basic recipe many times, but I've added a tablespoon of lemon zest with the asparagus. This adds just the amount of zing to make this a recipe you'll make again. Another variation on this is to add either pre-cooked chicken pieces with the asparagus, or raw shrimp added just before the asparagus and cooked through.
