    Gay Gilmore's Note:

    This is a terrific dish, and by adding the asparagus late it stays firm, not soggy.

      Pretty good. Just a few comments. The stock amounts are a bit low. And I find having the stock on the back stove burner on low heat helps. Put an extra cup or two of stock in the pan and like all other risotto, just stop adding when done.<br/>I also didn't like adding the asparagus with the 1st stock addition. Too long a time cooking asparagus and too rough on it with the constant stirring. I just roasted it earlier in the day and cut it and added it with the cream and basil. <br/>The final dish was very good.

      I followed the recipe as written except did not add the basil (my family preference). The asparagus was tender and not overcooked. My hubby and I really enjoyed it but other guests did not care for it but I think that is just a taste preference. I will make again when its only hubby and I for dinner.

      This was my first attempt at risotto and it was fabulous. Thanks so much for another recipe to use my backyard asparagus in :)
