Saturday night, while Alicia and Shazam were here, I decided to fix dinner. I thought a nice veggie risotto would be nice since we had been eaten so much during their visit. I shredded a head of radicchio and sauteed it with some sliced baby bella mushrooms in a little olive oil. I cut up a bunch of asparagus and blanched it , adding the heads to the water about a minute after I dropped the other pieces in. Once the asparagus was cooked to my liking I added it to the risotto. I finished it off by adding about a cup of grated Pecorino-Romano cheese and served it with bread and salad. My basic recipe can be found here: Risotto.
