Dorothy, I don't know how you do it, but this is another AWESOME recipe. The asparagus was cooked just right and the flavor was out of this world. It also looked very pretty with the bright green of the veggie and the snow white of the rice. I am not sure if I will ever be able to eat asparagus any other way. Thanks for spoiling me!!

This was tasty! However, I think next time I make this I will steam the asparagus seperately and add it just before serving, as it really overpowered everything else in the dish. But the texture was great, a yummy lowfat risotto!

We just weren't crazy about it. I used vegetable stock, which may have affected the taste, I don't know. I tried to liven it up a bit with crispy bacon as a topping. It was fine for a weeknight meal, but it didn't excite anyone. The asparagus seemed both overpowering and lost at the same time; I think I prefer to eat it alone (roasted - mmmmmm, delicious) for maximum enjoyment.

Excellent recipe! Tasty, and pretty. The one downside: doesn't reheat very well.

In my opinion long grain rice doesn't work as well as arborio rice (I have tried almost any kind of rice with risotto and long grain rice just doesn't make it...) If it is needed to reduce saturated fat in the dish, olive oil is a sound alternative. Furthermore: Use vegetable stock! Normally I use 4 cups of broth per one cup of rice but I use arborio... I would add more herbs to the recipe but that's just me... Eventually I will post my asparagus risotto recipe.

I love this dish! Satisfying flavours, texture and appearance....used olive oil instead of butter or margarine, used an electric skillet instead of a saucepan, used converted rice instead of regular...and it's spectacular. So thanks for a new asparagus recipe Derf
