" Risotto with Asparagus"
Do you like asparagus? if so, this is the recipe for you!
Aspragus are one of the veggie with more vitamins. Detoxifiers and diuretics, asparagus is rich in vitamins, mineral salts and energetic substances, possessing antioxidant properties.

Risotto is a northern Italian rice dish cooked with broth until it reaches a creamy consistency. The broth can be derived from meat, fish, or vegetables. Many types of risotto contain butter, onion, white wine, and parmesan cheese. It is one of the most common ways of cooking rice in Italy. Wikipedia
