Expert Tips

To toast almonds, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until almonds begin to brown, then stirring constantly until almonds are light brown.

Progresso® chicken broth provides a simple addition to this risotto that features asparagus and almonds - a creamy Italian side dish.

Directions

  • 1 Break off tough ends of asparagus; cut spears into 1-inch pieces. Cover with cold water; set aside.
  • 2 In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook onion and garlic in oil about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion is tender. Stir in rice and wine. Cook about 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until wine is absorbed.
  • 3 Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in 1 cup of the chicken broth. Cook uncovered about 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until broth is absorbed. Stir in additional 1 cup broth. Cook about 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until broth is absorbed.
  • 4 Drain asparagus. Stir asparagus and whipping cream into rice. Cook uncovered about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until rice is just tender and asparagus is crisp-tender.
  • 5 Stir in cheese. Serve rice topped with almonds.
