Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a saucepan put 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil and 2 tablespoons butter, and turn heat to medium. When the butter starts foaming add the onion. Sauté until the onion is soft.
  • * Add rice, stir for about 2 minutes, add salt and pepper.
  • * Add the wine, and stir for about 2 minutes until absorbed.
  • * Add asparagus stem and one quarter cup broth.
  • Stir to prevent the rice from sticking to the pan. When the rice begins absorbing the liquid, add more broth.
  • * Repeat this step of adding the broth and stirring, keeping the rice at the consistency of a dense paste.
  • * After about 12 minutes add the asparagus spears.
  • * Continue adding the broth and stirring as indicated above.
  • * After about 18 minutes add the rest of the butter, parmigiano reggiano cheese, and continue stirring and adding broth.
  • *The rice will be ready in about 2 more minutes, when al dente (firm but not too soft or overcooked). Cooking time may vary.
  • Let the risotto set for about 2 minutes. Serve hot.
