Asparagus @ Mushroom Risotto

My dish became about from cooking a meal for my flat mates. On a budget of $20.00 As it was my turn to cook and it was a couple of days before payday.Hence my version and my own recipe of Asparagus @ Mushroom Risotto.

I do roughly the same, but I add about 50g dried porcini mushrooms soaked in a little hot water & add the remaining liquid to the stock & the porcini the same time as buttons or other; just enhances so much
