Risotto with Mushrooms, Peas and Sausage (Risotto ai Funghi, Piselli e Salsiccia)

The secret to making risotto is to cook it slowly, stir it often and add as much liquid as the rice requires. Since the pot will need almost constant stirring, have all of the ingredients ready in advance and be prepared to devote your undivided attention to cooking the rice. The texture and flavor are best when the risotto has been carefully made and is served fresh from the stove. Soft, creamy risotto usually is served as a first course, followed by meat or fish. Top this risotto with shavings of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and serve with Barbera, a red wine from the Piedmont region that complements the mushrooms and sausages.

Very fine risotto
October 10, 2013
Overall a very satisfying risotto which smells great on the stove. The only thing I can say is that I was a bit let down by the uniformity of colour. Definitely helps to have the peas! Delicious and filling.
Also, be aware: because this is Italian and there aren't loads of ingredients, be sure to avoid the mistake I made by going for sub-par mushrooms. Quality ingredients make the difference in flavour!
