Pancetta risotto with asparagus *drools*

(Mostly) Yummy Mummy:

I must confess to eating asparagus all year round (I know, I know!) but you really can’t beat those first bundles of amazing British asparagus hitting your shopping basket, can you? ‘Tis the season folks so thought this was worth a reblog!

Of course, British asparagus season is upon us and I honestly can’t get enough of it. There’s something so exciting about those first bundles hitting my shopping basket but I know that might just be me. I really am easily pleased.

There’s nothing I like more than keeping it simple and just serving it steamed with dippy duck eggs and freshly ground pepper but another of my absolute favourites (and more importantly, a guaranteed plate clearer with little people) is with a lovely creamy pancetta risotto. As ever, I’m very much a throw it all in and taste it as I go along kind of cook but this recipe should feed at least four greedy people.

    Wow this looks amazing and so delicious. I will have to try it out. I love a good asparagus and pea risotto myself and the kids too so this would be perfect recipe to try. Thanks for sharing.
