Risotto is such a great dish for the fall and winter season. It embodies warmth and comfort, and the hearty nature of the dish makes it a filling and satisfying. My risotto with mushroom and asparagus is always a hit and it is really not a difficult dish to make. It’s all in the rice, but when you first get a feeling for when the rice is just right (not overcooked), you can’t go wrong with this one. The risotto is great as a side, served with meat or fish, but I often eat it as a hearty main course.
