Asparagus Risotto Recipe
Warm broth in a saucepan over low heat. In a large sauté pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Sauté onion and garlic.
Add aborio rice and cook, stirring constantly, for 2-3 minutes. Add wine and cook until all liquid is absorbed. Add broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring occasionally and waiting until it is absorbed before adding more.
Meanwhile in a sauté pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Saute asparagus until bright green and slightly tender (about 3-4 minutes). Once broth is completely absorbed into the risotto, add asparagus, season with salt and pepper, and stir in the parmesan cheese.
