Pasta Risotto With Asparagus

Chef.Foodie's picture
Ingredients
  Orzo/Other tiny pasta shapes, such as stars / letters 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Rice Shaped Pasta)
  Water 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Chicken broth 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Asparagus pieces 2 Cup (32 tbs) (1 Inch Long)
  Grated parmesan cheese 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (About 1/4 Cup)
Directions

In a 2- to 3-quart pan, combine pasta, broth, and water.
Bring to a boil over high heat; then reduce heat and simmer gently for 5 minutes.
Add asparagus and continue to simmer until pasta has absorbed almost all liquid and mixture is like a thick soup (7 to 10 more minutes); stir often to prevent sticking.
Stir 1/4 cup of the cheese into pasta mixture, then divide between 2 warm plates.
Offer additional cheese to add to taste, if desired.
