My husband and I made this with some fresh asparagus from the local farmer's market. It was fabulous. We love to make asparagus, and this was one of the best that we've ever made. The lemon flavor isn't overpowering, but brightens the flavors.

Stirring in the lemon juice and thyme right at the end gives an incredible fresh pop of both! Beautiful lemon flavor, creamy risotto, and tender asparagus. A very nice harbinger of spring.

I didn't have the rice, so tried with orzo pasta. It worked out great. Just skip the second step where you microwave the rice before adding the broth.

This is so delicious--my favorite risotto recipe of all time. I've made it several times with parmesan and tonight substituted goat cheese--even more luscious. This one is fantastic! Served with white wine, an orange & red onion salad and a turkey Italian sausage.
