asparagus spears, trimmed
1 1/3 cups
uncooked Arborio or long-grain rice
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
We enjoyed this recipe! The technique for the Arborio rice is a little off (make sure you add liquid slowly and stir often only adding more liquid when it's soaked up).
I used the Arborio rice. The method used in the recipe is not the general method used when preparing risotto, and long grain rice is not typically used either. I did add broth slowly to the rice mixture and it came out well.
Good way to get my son to eat asparagus.
This was so good!! We followed the recipe as written with the Arborio rice and it came out great even though it is a different way to prepare risotto. Will definitely make this again
