Creamy Tomato & Chicken Sausage Risotto
with Marinated Tomato & Parmesan
What’s not to love about risotto? It’s luxurious, comforting, and never fails to satisfy. It may have a reputation for being labor intensive, but ours couldn’t be easier! This tomato-centric version begins with caramelizing onion. You’ll then add hearty chicken sausage and homemade tomato stock, and finish the risotto with a swirl of sour cream and topping of tangy marinated tomatoes for bright, juicy contrast. As a finishing touch, sprinkle this delicious dish with chopped parsley and Parmesan.

• In a large pot, combine crushed tomatoes and 5 cups water (10 cups for 4 servings); season with ½ tsp sugar (1 tsp for 4 servings), salt, and pepper. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce to a low simmer. • Meanwhile, wash and dry produce. • Dice tomato into ½-inch pieces. Halve, peel, and finely dice onion. Roughly chop parsley.
• In a small bowl, combine diced tomato, half the vinegar (all for 4 servings), ¼ tsp sugar (½ tsp for 4), and a large drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. • Set aside, stirring occasionally, until ready to serve.
• Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add sausage and cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer sausage to a paper-towel-lined plate, keeping as much oil in pan as possible. • Add another drizzle of oil to pan. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
• Add rice, 1 cup tomato stock, and stock concentrates to pan; stir until liquid has mostly absorbed. Repeat with remaining stock, adding ½ cup at a time and stirring until liquid has mostly absorbed, until rice is al dente and mixture is creamy, 20-25 minutes. TIP: You may need all the stock for the risotto. • Season generously with salt and pepper.
• Once risotto is done, remove from heat and stir in cooked sausage, sour cream, half the parsley, half the Parmesan, and 2 TBSP butter (4 TBSP for 4 servings). Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.
• Divide risotto between shallow bowls. • Spoon marinated tomato (draining first) in the center of the risotto. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan and garnish with remaining parsley.
