The asparagus continues to come in in bunches from the garden each day. Last night we had it as a side dish. Tonight it was the star.
I frequently make risotto. It is so much easier than I had been led to believe before trying to make it.
Asparagus has starred in Shrimp and Asparagus Risotto. I have talked about it before on this blog. Yum.
I had lunch with friends and The Bearded One had a heavier than usual lunch so we decided to eliminate so much protein in the risotto and tried Mario Batali’s Asparagus Risotto.
It was great. The pureed asparagus made a great difference in color and depth of flavor! Try it!
