Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This recipe was incredibly easy and definitely convenient. This recipe was incredibly easy and definitely convenient. Knowing that the asparagus can be subtituted for other veggies - the ingredients are staples in my house. I thought a whole onion would be a bit much - and I also didn't add the full amount of parmesan cheese. This was a great recipe - as a dinner OR side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is such a fantastic recipe! This is such a fantastic recipe! The more I make it the faster and easier it is and I now keep all the ingredients on hand in case I decide we want it for dinner. One of my family's favorite sides to pretty much anything we eat. It's still a fantastic dish even without the asparagus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was extraordinary! This was extraordinary! I've never had risotto, nor have I really had asparagus by itself, so I was a little nervous. Imagine my surprise! The flavors were divine ... I didn't realize it would be so flavorful ... after all it is RICE. But it was delicious ... everyone thought so.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first attempt at making risotto and it tasted delicious. My first attempt at making risotto and it tasted delicious. Followed the recipe almost to exact, except I ended up adding more liquid to the dish and cooking it longer for the rice to be finished. My fiance even enjoyed it and he's not a fan of asparagus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! Wonderful! I got tons of good comments about this dish! It has a very light flavor and the crispness of the asparagus gives it a nice texture. I served it with paresan crusted chicken. Very filling and satisfying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Yummy! Very Yummy! I used half a red onion, just because I had it in the fridge, instead of a whole white onion. The whole family (four year-old included) loved it!
