As part of our Fresh Cooks Live: TODAY's Spring Cookalong series, self-made rising food star Laura Vitale, host of the popular YouTube cooking show “Laura in the Kitchen,” showed us how to make a classic Italian meal that's perfect for spring.

"An Italian household staple, risotto is super simple to make and very versatile," Laura said. "This version happens to be my favorite, in-season spring vegetables add not only lovely flavors to this dish, but also great texture. After moving to the States, I noticed that this dish was only served in restaurants and people never made it at home. In reality, this is home food I grew up eating in my grandmother's kitchen and I want people to know that a good risotto can be made in no time, right in their own kitchen!"

Watch the full cooking demo, which was streamed live for East Coast viewers! Laura also answered your cooking questions.
