monday meals: sausage risotto

this recipe is so yum. so so yum. f'real. (bed intruder reference, anyone?)

and not only is it yum, it's easy. so here you go.

1 tablespoon olive oil
16 ounces of sausage (my favorite is trader joe's chicken sausage)
1 clove of garlic
1 1/4 cup of arborio rice (risotto)
1 cup dry white wine
3 1/2 cups water
1 cup frozen peas
1/4 cup parmasan cheese


-heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat. add sausage (sliced or diced) and cook for about 3 minutes. add the garlic clove and sautee for about 1 minute.
-add the rice and the wine and heat until the wine is absorbed, stirring occasionally.
-add the water and simmer until it's absorbed, about 10-15 mintues, stirring occasionally.
-add peas and cheese, heat for about 2 more minutes
-add seasonings to taste and enjoy.

i didn't list seasonings in the ingredients, because i feel like you can be creative here. my favorite to add to this is salt, pepper, and tony's.
