beet risotto


i love beets and am always looking for other ways to cook them - this is from rachel ray - she suggests garnishing this with crumbled ricotta-salata cheese (or feta)and roasted asparagus. i am a purist and served it plain to enjoy the beet flavor. i also used 5 small beets instead of the large. (this might be nice garnished with a few toasted walnuts & a bit of crumbled blue cheese if you want to add some other flavors)
