Ingredients for 4 people
Mince and sauté the shallot very slowly in a few drops of extra virgin olive oil; add the rice and brown for a few minutes. Pour in the hot broth a little at a time; when the rice is half-cooked, add the blanched*, minced asparagus, remembering to set aside a few spears with which to decorate the dish.
After about 16 minutes, when the rice is done, turn off the burner and add the cold butter, the Pecorino Romano DOP, a few drops of oil and a dash of pepper, stirring to obtain a creamy consistency.
Spoon onto a serving dish and decorate with the asparagus spears and the remaining Pecorino Romano slivers.
*”Blanche”: to sear rapidly in boiling, salted water then plunge into ice to prevent the colours from fading.
