Asparagus, Corn & Pea Risotto

I have to be honest, I was always intimidated with cooking Risotto. I used to search for recipes & always want to give it a try. When I gave it a try, I was so satisfied with the results & was so proud.

It is such a smooth, creamy & tasty recipe. Rich in taste. With a few simple ingredients you can have such amazing results & more importantly, a delicious meal.

In this risotto recipe I chose to go simple. I have a craze for asparagus & wanted to cook a risotto with it. By adding the sweetness of the corn & also that bit of bite to it, it came together so nicely.

Adding the Grana Padano cheese adds to the creaminess of the risotto & also makes it richer in taste. So enjoy this Asparagus, Corn & Pea Risotto recipe & stay tuned for more risotto recipes.
