  • In a large pot, pan or wok, heat butter & olive oil on stove on medium heat. Add onions, peppers, celery & garlic & sauté until vegetables are soft. Add Arborio rice & stir constantly until rice is “toasted” (about 23 min).
  • Add 1 cup of liquid & stir constantly until liquid is absorbed. Repeat, adding 1 cup of liquid at a time until it is absorbed, continuing to stir constantly.
  • When rice is almost “al dente”, (softer, but still hard in the center) add mushrooms and asparagus. Once mushrooms have reduced in size, add shrimp. Continue stirring, adding liquid as needed. Add fresh basil, salt & pepper (reserving some basil for garnish). Once shrimp are no longer translucent, & rice is softer, add parmigiano-reggiano, continuing to stir & adding liquid if needed.
  • When rice is the proper consistency, (no longer hard in the middle) remove from heat.
  • Add remaining fresh basil, chopped tomato, pepper & additional parmigiano-reggiano as a garnish on top of each serving.

Notes

*may substitute white wine as part of the liquid. **may substitute regular parmesan cheese. Enjoy with crusty Italian bread, herbed butter, a mixed green salad with balsamic vinaigrette & sparkling water with lime or a glass of Riesling!
