Asparagus Risotto with Proscuitto

We love this high taste, low calorie recipe from SlimPasta.



  • 1.

    1Bring stock to the boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Reduce heat to low-medium. Cover. Keep at a gentle simmer. Heat oil and half the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, then cook, stirring, for 4-5 minutes or until onion is soft.

  • 2.

    Add rice. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until rice is hot and well coated in onion mixture.

  • 3.

    Add 1 cup hot stock and stir continuously until stock has been absorbed. Add another cup of stock. Stir until stock has been absorbed.

  • 4.

    Add asparagus to pan. Continue to add remaining stock, a cupful at a time, stirring continuously, allowing stock to be absorbed before adding more, until mixture is creamy and rice is just tender (this should take about 20 minutes) but still al dente; add a little extra stock or water if necessary. Prepare SlimPasta and cut finely. Add SlimPasta to mixture.

  • 5.

    Add lemon rind, juice, remaining butter, prosciutto and parmesan to risotto. Stir to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
