Spicy Sausage Risotto🍚



I wanted a simple Rice dish but one that’s flavorful so I put some ingredients together and came up with this!!! It’s spicy, creamy and delicious… great as a side dish with a luscious piece of meat or just by itself, wonderfully filling😋 Enjoy!


1 cup Aborio rice

2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons of butter

1 sm. Sweet onion, diced

1 head of escarole, cleaned & roughly chopped

1 bulb of fennel, cleaned and thin sliced

2 lg. Patties of hot Italian sausage

3 cups chicken broth

salt & pepper to taste

fresh parsley chopped to garnish

In a large skillet heat olive oil and add sausage broken up into lg. Chunks, sauté till browned, then add in the butter, onion & sliced fennel, stir till softened adding in bits of water if needed to prevent burning. Now add in the cup of rice, stirring constantly for about 2 mins., then stir in 1 cup of the Broth and continue cooking, stirring constantly until liquid is absorbed. Gradually stir in the remaining cups of broth and chopped escarole, adding broth 1 cup at a time, stirring till liquid is absorbed before adding the next cup, escarole will wilt and flavors will meld with rice, sausage and fennel mixture. Once all liquid is absorbed, let simmer for a few mins. longer and season with salt and pepper to your taste. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley. Serve immediately as dinner with a big salad or as a side! Mangia❤️
