This was instantly a house favorite! It’s savory and filling, and the prosciutto gives it crunch and the asparagus balances the otherwise heavy nature of the risotto. From start to finish, this dish only takes about 30 minutes to prepare, and comfortably serves two. Plus, you’ll have half a bottle of Prosecco just hanging around. As Giada says in her book, this is great for a romantic, cozy night in. Kids also love risotto, and this one is light on the butter and cheese and can be as heavy as you please on the asparagus!
This dish is so simple, quick, easy to clean up, and delicious that it has earned its spot in my standard home dinner rotation. It’s a total crowd pleaser, too. With it, I’ve seen some very picky kids learn to love capers, so long as they’re slathered in lemon butter.
