Baked Spring Veggie Risotto

Like every other person on the planet, I LOVE risotto! I have two problems with it though: 1) it is very highmaintenence and time consuming and 2) it's not a particularly healthy choice. This recipe attempts to address these two complaints, first by BAKING the risotto to minimize time and stirring, and second to use healthy barley and spring veggies to lighten up the dish.
