  • Yield: 6 adult serving (serving size: 2/3 cup risotto, about 1/2 cup vegetables, and 2 teaspoons cheese)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3 cups (2 inch) diagonally cut asparagus
  • 2 cups chopped yellow squash
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (32-ounce) carton fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups chopped leek
  • 1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme

Preparation

1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add asparagus and next 4 ingredients; sauté 10 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Set aside; keep warm.

2. Bring water and broth to a simmer in a medium saucepan (do not boil). Keep warm over low heat.

3. Melt butter in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add leek; cook 4 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Add rice; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in 1 1/2 cups broth mixture; cook 4 minutes or until liquid is nearly absorbed, stirring constantly. Add remaining broth mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly until each portion of broth is absorbed before adding the next (about 20 minutes total). Stir in 1/4 cup cheese and thyme.

4. Top risotto with vegetables; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese.
