  1. 1

    Start the Risotto

    Trim woody ends off asparagus and cut into 1" lengths.

    Pat shrimp dry.

  3. 3

    Finish the Risotto

    Add tomatoes, Parmesan, softened cream cheese, half the butter (reserve remaining for shrimp), and 2 Tbsp. water to hot pot. Stir until combined, 1-2 minutes.

    If too thick, add additional water, 1 tsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

    Remove from burner. Cover to keep warm.
