DIRECTIONS

  • Take a deep breath and say "Risotta-making is NOT difficult.".
  • Cut asparagus into 3/4" pieces. Set aside.
  • In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, saute the onion and bacon in 2 T butter for 3 minutes over medium heat.
  • Increase to high heat, add wine and reduce to half (about 3 minutes).
  • Add rice, salt and pepper and continue stirring on high for 1 minute.
  • Add 2 c of the hot chicken stock, lid the pan and turn off the heat.
  • 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.
  • When you return, reheat the broth and crank up the heat on the rice.
  • Stir, stir, stir, adding a cup of hot broth everytime it starts to look a bit dry.
  • Sample a bit: does it seem a bit chewy but almost ready?.
  • If so, add the asparagus and stir until heated through, about 2 minutes.
  • Sample again. Ready? Remove from heat and add 1 T butter and cheese.
