INDULGENT ITALIAN RISOTTO

Indulgent Italian Risotto

A light but flavour-packed risotto with Chicken Italia sausages and fragrant thyme. Comfortably serves two.

Ingredients

2 Heck Chicken Italia sausages
A glug of olive oil
1 large chopped sweet onion
1 teaspoon of minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme
285g Arborio risotto rice
1 small glass of chardonnay
800ml chicken broth
225g frozen petite sweet peas
50g grated parmesan
Big pinch of ground black pepper

Steps

1. Heat the oil in a heavy saucepan then sauté your sausages and onion until the onion goes translucent. Toss in your garlic and thyme, and cook for 30 seconds. Add your rice and wine, then stir for one or two minutes or until the wine’s absorbed.

2. Add your chicken broth, lower the heat to medium-low then simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Continue adding the stock and stirring until the liquid’s absorbed and the rice is nice and creamy. This should take about five minutes.

3. Stir in the peas and parmesan, cook until the whole dish is bubbling hot, and season with black pepper. Pour into a bowl and gobble immediately.
