Having been born and raised in Wisconsin (The Dairyland State) pretty much attests to the fact that I am a lover of all things cheese. Throughout the years, I have found ways to incorporate cheese into breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, and most recently into this asiago vegetable risotto!
Typically, I favor semisoft and fresh cheeses like provolone, mozzarella, and farmers cheese more so than the hard, “stinky” cheeses like bleu, stilton, and feta. However, I’m working towards developing my palate so that I can experience all of the wonderful tastes and textures available!
In honor of my favorite fat-laden protein, here is an incredibly easy and delicious recipe for you to try.
This risotto is filled with some pretty danged yummi ingredients, too. Asparagus (my favorite Spring veggie), zucchini (my favorite Summer veggie), and bacon (umm, do you know me at all? If so, there’s no explanation needed here. I have at least 27 recipes on this site that use bacon as an ingredient!) Top this side dish with Asiago cheese and you just created the best danged side dish imaginable!
Doesn’t that asiago vegetable risotto look yummi?! I can’t wait to use up some fresh veggies from the garden on this dish VERY soon!
