Instructions
For the risotto:
  1. In a large saucepan, heat chicken stock over low heat.
  2. To a separate skillet on medium-low heat, add the butter, olive oil, onion, garlic salt and pepper. Cook until onions and garlic are softened.
  3. Add the rice. Toast rice until the outside begins to turn translucent. Stir in white wine.
  4. Turn heat in the skillet down to low and add the first cup of hot chicken stock and stir. Once the stock is absorbed add another cup. Continue this until the rice is creamy and cooked throughout (between 5 and 6 cups of stock).
  5. Finish off by stirring in the freshly grated parmesan, pancetta and roasted asparagus (recipe follows).
  6. Serve with grated parmesan and a drizzle of fresh olive oil.
For the asparagus:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a pot of boiling water, blanch asparagus for thirty seconds. Remove from heat & submerge immediately in ice water. This will result in a bright & vibrant asparagus.
  3. Dry asparagus and toss in olive oil, salt and pepper.
  4. Roast for 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Chop spears into 1 inch pieces and set aside.
