    Elisabetta47's Note:

    Spring brings us all this gorgeous but pricey fresh asparagus. I don't mind the expense for the pleasure of steamed spears. But I've found that in making risotto, using a frozen product often gives as much flavor, and is easier and cheaper. Step 6 is where I veer away from traditional risotto making - something I figured out when my kids were little and I wanted to be with them rather than stand at the stove, stirring. This early prep saves you at least 10 minutes of on-your-way-to-varicose-veins time.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Take a deep breath and say "Risotta-making is NOT difficult.".
    2. 2
      Cut asparagus into 3/4" pieces. Set aside.
    3. 3
      In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, saute the onion and bacon in 2 T butter for 3 minutes over medium heat.
    4. 4
      Increase to high heat, add wine and reduce to half (about 3 minutes).
    5. 5
      Add rice, salt and pepper and continue stirring on high for 1 minute.
    6. 6
      Add 2 c of the hot chicken stock, lid the pan and turn off the heat.
    7. 7
      Go walk your dog, call your girlfriend, write that chapter in your novel. It can sit there until roughly 10-15 minutes before dinner is served.
    8. 8
      When you return, reheat the broth and crank up the heat on the rice.
    9. 9
      Stir, stir, stir, adding a cup of hot broth everytime it starts to look a bit dry.
    10. 10
      Sample a bit: does it seem a bit chewy but almost ready?.
    11. 11
      If so, add the asparagus and stir until heated through, about 2 minutes.
    12. 12
      Sample again. Ready? Remove from heat and add 1 T butter and cheese.

      This recipe is fantastic! I had never made risotto before so I was a little nervous but it was super easy and it turned out to be creamy and flavourful!
