Directions

  1. Cut sausage into 1/2" cubes; set aside. Bring broth to a boil in a 2-quart saucepan. Reduce heat to low to keep broth hot.
  2. Heat oil in a 4-quart pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add sausage, onion and mushrooms. Cook, stirring frequently, 3-4 minutes or until sausage is lightly browned.
  3. Add butter and rice. Cook, stirring constantly 2 minutes. Stir in wine; cook until liquid has almost completely absorbed.
  4. Stir in 1/2 cup of heated chicken broth. Cook, stirring constantly until liquid is absorbed. Add remaining broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly until each portion of broth is absorbed before adding the next (about 20 minutes total).
  5. Remove from heat; stir in asparagus, 1/3 cup of Parmesan and parsley. Add salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle top with remaining Parmesan cheese.

This was a terrific risotto recipe. The directions are very precise and makes a perfect al-dente risotto. The only thing I didn't add was the sausage since I used it as a side dish. I have had a hard time making good risotto in the past but finally feel I perfected it with this recipe! Give it a try--it is worth all the stirring and time!!!

Used regular sweet Italian sausage, doubled the recipe as a main course for a family of four. The only thing I held back a little on was the cheese otherwise followed the recipe -- everyone loved it.
