Baked Asparagus risotto

Made this as a side dish for the *Post Christmas* Friends lunch – especially since I adore risotto (and so does HIM)… and I loved the idea of the convenience of being able to bake it.. . Plus, instead of hours of standing of stirring away (while my guests were enjoying their drinkies) – It was as quick as one, two, three to get it ready and into the oven… and just as delicious as a stove-top risotto… plus the asparagus still had their crunch and the tomatoes weren’t mush…

this is a recipe that I will definitely make again!
