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.
