Very hearty and delicious! I used canned northern beans and didn't use any butter. Still fantastic!
Another wonderful recipe from Signora Hazan! Her cookbooks are among the most dog-eared on my kitchen shelf - lots of fun to read as well as cook from.
I love Marcella Hazan's recipes (and Evelyn's too) and this one did not disappoint. The result is a lovely, rich, satisfying risotto. I used half sweet and half spicy Italian sausages and flat leaf parsley from the garden. Yum!
Made & reviewed for ZWT 4 ~ for Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! I made 2 slight alterations to the recipe : 1) I used tinned Borlotti beans & 2) I used Merguez sausage which is a spiced lamb sausage. Other than those 2 things, I stuck to the recipe & it produced the most delicious risotto I've had in a long time! Thanks Ev for a great recipe. :)
