  1. In a 3-quart saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until it becomes soft and translucent, which should take about 1 minute. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  2. Mix in the rice, asparagus, and stock. Place a lid on the saucepan and lower the heat to medium-low.
  3. Stir occasionally to prevent the rice from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Continue cooking until the rice is tender, approximately 10 minutes.
  4. Once the rice is cooked, turn off the heat and gently fold in the Parmesan cheese and the remaining butter. Serve immediately.


  • – For a vegetarian version, substitute chicken broth with vegetable broth.
    – Ensure to stir the rice constantly to achieve a creamy texture.
    – Freshly grated Parmesan cheese enhances the flavor compared to pre-packaged grated cheese.
