Risotto with asparagus Quick and easy recipe

Risotto with asparagus : I've never been a fan of asparagus but this time I have to change my mind, they have a well-defined flavor even if not overly preponderant. Asparagus is rich in minerals and vitamins, they are diuretic and low in calories. In risottos they are perfect, it is possible to add some other ingredients to this recipe but the dish is already perfect. They can enrich the dish with strips of bacon or, the variant I prefer, includes a few spoonfuls of robiola, but in this period it is better to keep light!

Ingredients for 2 people

  • 200 gr of Carnaroli rice (or Vialone nano)
  • 12 green asparagus
  • 1 white onion
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan
