Fixed this yesterday, and all I can say is wonderful, superb, tasty, etc. etc. DH and I loved it, and since it's just the two of us we have some leftovers. I followed the recipe exactly, and although it does take a little time, there is nothing difficult about it. I will definitely fix this again. Thanks for a great treat.

OUTSTANDING! Risotto is a bit labor intensive but this recipe is well worth the work. The rosemary adds a hint of flavor and the parmesan is the perfect accompaniment. I did have to cook mine a little longer for the puree to absorb but other than that everything was perfect. I will definately make this over and over!!

All I have to say is this recipe is GENIUS! I think it was the best risotto I've had in a very long time. I actually did a few changes to make it vegan. I swapped the cream for a soy creamer & skipped out on the parm & used a homemade veg broth I always keep on hand. I loved the quick painless asparagus puree and I added to the onion mushrooms & when I added the rosemary I also added lemon zest and 2 garlic cloves minced with a microplane. Thank you, thank you, thank you for a PERFECT & user friendly recipe.

Lucky me, I had all the ingredients on hand for this and it was wonderful! I didn't have quite enough asparagus and it certainly could have used all the recipe called for. I love the idea of making an asparagus puree and using that as part of the liquid?so you get asparagus in every bite! This is going into my Best of fort 2014! Thanks for posting!!

Made this as a Thanksgiving side at 7500' elevation. Took about 1 cup more broth. AMAZING!!!

My first attempt at Risotto!!! It was delicious, I served it with grilled lemon chicken. The lemon is a nice compliment to the creamy risotto. The only thing that I would change would be to add more asparagus. Thanks for the great instructions!!

Very nice! I don't care for rosemary, so seasoned with tarragon. Omitted the cream, and was still good.

Delish! Made it for dinner last nite, had leftovers for lunch today. I did add one clove garlic. Love the addition of the puree -- took it from being risotto with asparagus, to risotto that not only had asparagus, but tasted like asparagus. Thanks for the recipe.

This is one of the best risotto recipes I have eaten. It took time to make but the end result was fabulous. Thanks for a wonderful recipe that I will make again.
