Rebecca Parsons (see bio at the end of this post) is a woman of many talents.  Among them, she is an excellent cook.  Jamie and I became acquainted with Rebecca as guests on her blogtalk radio progralm, "Artistially Speaking".  I asked if she would be a guest blogger and share a recipe from her files, and she graciously agreed.
Thank you, Rebecca!

Asparagus Risotto with Chervil and #NewKnorrStock Recipe #cBias

I love to cook new dishes and challenge myself. Risotto seems to be the new buzz word on every television cooking program. Many an aspiring chef has met their demise as the hands of risotto. So today, I will be creating risotto for the first time with the new Knorr Homestyle Chicken Stock #NewKnorrStock.

I usually make my own stock, but this tiny package of Knorr Chicken Stock from Walmartholds a new time-saving way to have a great tasting stock in seconds. That’s a good thing. It is “made with carefully selected ingredients and simmered to perfection —perfect for broth and soups; rice, mashed potatoes and pasta; roast chicken; and sauces and gravies.”  It is Low Fat and Cholesterol Free with no added MSG.
