Venere rice with Gorgonzola Sauce and Zafferano

Serves 4:

• 250g of Venere rice
• 70 g Gorgonzola Dolce
• a spoon of Ciresino
• ½ cup of Milk
• An envelope of saffron
• 10 Asparagus
• Salt

Remove the hard part of the asparagus. Wash the tender parts and cut into cubes. Cook the asparagus in salted water for 10 minutes, then drain.

Boil the black rice in lightly salted water (it’s a long cooking time of 40-50 minutes). Drain the rice, put it under water to stop the cooking.
In a pan, put the Gorgonzola cut into small cubes, the Ciresino and Milk, stirring frequently for about 5 minutes with a wooden spoon so it does not stick to the bottom.

Add saffron and continue stirring to make an homogeneous color and let saffron dissolve well in the cheese. When the sauce is homogeneous, place a pile of rice on each plate and pour the cheese sauce and the asparagus.

Walnut and Gorgonzola DOP omelette
