White beans add a surprisingly fresh flavor to risotto, and this risotto with beans, herbs and fresh Asiago cheese is so hearty and packed with proteins that it's basically a meal all by itself, and a very refreshing and satisfying one accompanied by a light salad of greens and vinaigrette. I use navy beans in my "risotto al fagioli", but any white bean such as cannellini or great northern will do just as well.
