Pork Sausage & Bell Pepper Risotto

Pork Sausage & Bell Pepper Risotto

with Parmesan & Lemon

Risotto is the food equivalent of a big bear hug. Sure, whipping it up requires a little extra attention (and stirring), but the results are beyond worth it. Luckily, our chefs have made nailing it easier—and tastier—than ever. This version is chock full of savory pork sausage, tender roasted bell pepper, garlic, and Italian spices. For a finishing touch, nutty Parmesan and a squeeze of lemon juice are swirled in and scallion greens are sprinkled on top. We know, we know: We had you at “risotto.”

Simmer Stock & Prep

• Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry produce. • In a medium pot, combine stock concentrates and 4 cups water (7 cups for 4 servings). Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to low. • Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Peel and mince or grate garlic. Halve, core, and slice bell pepper into 1⁄2-inch-thick strips. Quarter lemon.

Cook Sausage

• Remove sausage* from casing; discard casing. • Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes. • Turn off heat. Using a slotted spoon, transfer sausage to a paper-towel- lined plate, leaving as much oil in pan as possible.

Start Risotto

• Heat pan with reserved oil over medium heat; add scallion whites, garlic, rice, and 1⁄2 tsp Italian Seasoning (1 tsp for 4 servings; you’ll use more later). (TIP: If pan is dry, add another drizzle of olive oil.) Cook, stirring, until scallion whites are softened and rice is translucent, 1-2 minutes. • Add 1⁄2 cup stock; stir, scraping up any browned bits from bottom of pan, until liquid has mostly absorbed.

Finish Risotto

• Repeat process with remaining stock—adding 1⁄2 cup at a time and stirring until liquid has mostly absorbed—until rice is al dente and mixture is creamy, 25-30 minutes. TIP: Depending on the size of your pan, you may need a little more or a little less liquid.

Roast Bell Pepper

• While risotto simmers, toss bell pepper on a baking sheet with a large drizzle of olive oil and 1 tsp Italian Seasoning (1 1⁄2 tsp for 4 servings). (Use the rest of the Italian Seasoning as you like.) Season with salt and pepper. • Roast on top rack until softened and lightly charred, 15-20 minutes.

Finish & Serve

• Once risotto is done, stir in sausage, roasted bell pepper, half the Parmesan, and 2 TBSP butter (3 TBSP for 4 servings). Add a squeeze of lemon juice to taste and season with salt and pepper. • Divide between bowls and sprinkle with scallion greens and remaining Parmesan. Serve with any remaining lemon wedges on the side.
