  • I'm debating on making this ... wifey does not like asparagus (blashamy!) ... or onions (double blasphemy!) ... but I do ...

    Sounds like a great recipe though

    My husband likes both, but this did not win him over to risotto (insane, because he loves "regular" rice!) like I'd hoped, so I have a lot of it to eat! Maybe I should just send you some. :)
