    Baby Kato's Note:

    This was one of my dad's recipes. You can always freeze unused parts of the asparagus for soup or stir frys. This is a quick and easy risotto to make. No fuss no muss you make it in the microwave in one dish. Very, very tasty. I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do.

      I liked this but it needs more flavor for me. Maybe sneak some garlic in somewhere. I would also recommend cooking the asparagus for two minutes so it is not mushy. I love the ease of this recipe. Wente to the Market 4/2011.

      This was the perfect side for lemon herb chicken breasts. The arborio came out fluffy and tender but not mushy. I used the veggie broth. This recipe could easily be the star of the table, it has wonderful flavor and the asparagus was cooked beautifully. What a treat! The parm is a must in my opinion. I didn't have any mushrooms but they will be added the next time I make this. :D

      I love this risotto because it's made in the microwave. I used only 2 tbs of olive oil, no butter. I used 1 large red onion, 1/2 lb mushroom. And to reduce the fat, I omitted the parmesan. Thanks Baby Kato. I loved it. Made for Market tag.
