    I got this from an old Reader's Digest cookbook. Haven't made it in years, but I just dug all my books out of the garage after moving, and remembered how great this one is!

      This is an amazing recipe! I made as directed, but used arborio rice and slowly stirred the broth into it (how traditional risotto is made). I also added green onions and omitted celery. Thanks for the fantastic recipe!

      I thought this was good - I used all shrimp. . had no asparagus or celery. Added bacon to the onion for extra flavor. Also used arborio rice instead or long grain. I don't think it would be as good with long grain rice. Next time I may try to use a more flavorful oil instead of regular olive oil.

      Delicious!! This went together quickly and easily and had lots of flavor. I made this as written except that I cut the asparagus into 1" pieces and increased both the salt and pepper. My family really enjoyed this and I will definitely be making it again. Thank you for sharing. This was made for PAC spring 2007.
