Directions

  • 1 In 3-quart saucepan, heat water to boiling. Cook onion and asparagus in water, stirring frequently, until crisp-tender. Remove mixture from saucepan.
  • 2 Spray saucepan with cooking spray; add rice to saucepan. Cook, stirring frequently, until rice begins to brown.
  • 3 Pour 1/2 cup of the broth over rice. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until liquid is absorbed.

Sprinkle with cheese.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Risotto is done when enough broth has been absorbed to make the rice just tender and the mixture creamy.

The secret to creamy risotto is adding the broth 1/2 cup at a time and cooking with frequent stirring until all the liquid is absorbed before repeating with another 1/2 cup broth.
