I've been trying various alternatives of risotto and landed on this one with truffle oil as my favorite. I'll still be experimenting and adding more in the future. Serve with extra Parmesan cheese on top and a few truffle slices if you have them.

The flavor in this was really good. I ended up only needing 4 cups of chicken broth and even then it was still on the runny side. The recipe only calls for the asparagus to be trimmed but if I were to make this again I'd chop it into more manageable pieces. Overall this is a really good recipe with a great flavor combo.
