What's Cooking: Ham and Asparagus Risotto

I've never attempted anything related to a risotto before, but when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it.

The preparation was easy, but the cooking took forever! You slowly add the broth to the pan a little at a time. Once I finally had all of the ingredient in the skillet, we still had to cook it for another half and hour or so.

In the end we ended up covering the pan and letting it sit for awhile. Flannel Man and I took turns stirring it to make sure it didn't burn, but rice takes so long to fully cook.

Final verdict: The recipe tasted great when it was done. We added a little hot sauce to kick up the heat level, but even without it the flavor was great. But it's definitely not a quick meal.

  1. Risotto is definitely a meal that I don't make too often because of the time, but it sure is good. Thanks for the link-up.
