Preparation for the asparagus and pancetta risotto recipe

  1. Remove the woody part and the damaged tips of the asparagus, wash them under running water and cut them into rings.
  2. Put them to cook in a little water and, when they are cooked, drain and set aside.
  3. Slice the onion, take a non-stick pan and after having melted a little butter, let it brown.
  4. When the onion is golden, add the rice and toast it.
  5. As soon as the rice is golden brown, add the asparagus and pour the vegetable broth a little at a time.
  6. When almost cooked, add the smoked bacon cut into cubes.
  7. Finally, season with salt, add the Parmesan and stir everything with a wooden spoon until the cheese melts. In a few minutes your creamy and very fast risotto with asparagus and bacon is ready to be served.

To give a more intense aroma , once toasted, you can blend the rice with white wine or cointreau. This dish should be prepared on the spot: if you intend to prepare the asparagus and pancetta risotto recipe a little earlier then it is advisable not to finish cooking the rice and leave it a little raw. By doing so you can take it back just before serving it.


This simple and delicious first course can be kept in the fridge for 1-2 days in an airtight container.
