I totally agree with stephanierndos' use of green and red bell peppers. I find their flavour really adds to the dish. I also added a little crushed red pepper for some extra kick. I could have gone with spicy italian sausage, but it would have been too much for my girlfriend who dislikes spicy food. Fantastic recipe.
Very good!!! I used sweet italian turkey sausage and red & green bell pepper slices along with onion. Also, we followed the directions on the Arborio rice package - which instructs you to slowly simmer and stir continually - very yummy indeed, thank you!
