Well good heavens Evie, this was just delicious. I have never cooked with fresh sage but was able to get ahold of some. Wow, is all I can say. What flavor!! This was a beautiful risotto with a fabulous taste. The pumpkin and sage flavors went well together I thought. Thanks for a wonderful Fall dish.

Absolutely delicious! What incredible flavors! The only changes I have to suggest are in the amount of stock needed, which is closer to 5 to 6 cups or more. This was wonderful risotto and I thank you so much for this recipe!! Dianne
