This may seem like a funny summertime meal but last week it rained and was cold outside. Risotto is one of my favorite cold and rainy meals. It is such a warm and satisfying dose of comfort food. I know many people are intimidated by risotto. I know I used to be but it is really easy. Risotto just takes some time but it is worth the effort. Here is my favorite risotto recipe. This recipe can also be easily turned into a delicious veggie meal by switching the sausage for mushrooms and the chicken stock for veggie stock.
