1/4 C onion, diced
1 sweet potato, peeled and diced
1 lb. Italian turkey sausage
3/4 C Arborio rice or risotto(uncooked)
1 1/2 C - 2 C hot water
3/4 C chicken broth
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/4 C Parmesan, shredded
Dice up the sweet potato.
Cook sausage and onion in an oven-proof dish until sausage is browned and done
Add in sweet potato pieces and cook about a minute.
Then, add in the rice, stirring to coat the rice with the oils in the pan.
Stir in 1/2 C hot water, chicken broth, salt and pepper seasoning.
Bring to a boil.
Then, cover and transfer the dish to an oven, preheated to 425 degrees.
Bake about 20-25 minutes, until most of the water has been absorbed by the rice.
Stir in 1/4 - 1/2 C water until the consistency is creamy. Top with cheese.
I pair it with a delicious lemony-roasted asparagus, and it makes a great meal..
Off to work ...Kimberly coming up to help me out and then do some deliveries for me..Just want it to be a sunny day.. I am sick and tired of this gloomy weather with spoty sunshine here and there.
Who is Granny?
I'm the incredibly blessed mother and stepmother of 4, "Granny" to 2 Fabulous boys , and wife of "Grumpy." Life at Granny's House is full of laughter, friendship, books, music, lively debate, sports especially hockey and good things to eat. My days are made even more meaningful by having a beautiful home full of love. The purpose of this blog is to make cooking fun and not a chore. So guys and gals cooking is not any one persons job,we all like to eat, so we should all like to cook. Hopefully I can help you achieve that in your home kitchen. The kitchen is more then a room in the home, it is a place to prepare meals, entertain and enjoy each others company. Family time is very important and there is no better place to find out what is happening in your loved ones lives then the kitchen table with plates full of a good HOME COOKED meal.
I've got to say life is pretty good and seems to be getting better with age. For that I want to thank my family and good friends.
