This recipe exceeded my expectations. With wonderful ingredients like sausage, fresh vegetables and a delicious tomato wine sauce; it was a complete hit.
It's pretty too, isn't it! I loved all the gorgeous colors. Like a sunny day; eating pretty food just makes it better.
Sausage & Broccoli Risotto
Adapted from Will Cook for Smiles
12 oz. ground Italian sausage
1 small bunch of broccoli, chopped fairly small
1 small onion, chopped
1 medium carrot, shredded
1 cup arborio rice
1 tbsp. garlic, minced
1 cup white wine
1 can chicken broth
1 can diced tomatoes
Salt and pepper
Cook sausage in nonstick pan and saute until almost done. Add onion and carrot and cook for 3 - 4 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and rice and saute for about a minute.
Add 1/2 cup white wine. Stir evenly and cook until the wine is absorbed. Add 1/2 of the broth, stir well and cook until absorbed. Add the other 1/2 cup wine, stir well and cook until liquid is absorbed. Add chicken broth slowly until rice is done and it is at desired consistency. Add broccoli for the last 3 - 5 minutes or so of cooking to lightly steam. Don't overcook the broccoli!
