It's all Italian--from the creamy slow-cooked risotto to the veggie primavera.
Updated Jul 12, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1 pound asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup uncooked Arborio or other short-grain white rice
  • 2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) vegetable broth
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup frozen sweet peas
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Steps

  • 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. Continue cooking 15 to 20 minutes, adding broth 1/2 cup at a time and stirring occasionally, until rice is tender and creamy; add asparagus mixture, broccoli and peas with the last addition of broth. Sprinkle with cheese.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Risotto is done when enough broth has been absorbed to make the rice just tender and the mixture creamy.
  • tip 2
    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.
