Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, melt 2 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add the onion and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in the rice and 3 cups chicken broth and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover and cook until tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the sausage, breaking it up, over medium heat until no longer pink, about 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sausage to a plate. Add the zucchini to the skillet and cook until tender, about 4 minutes. Return the sausage to the skillet, add the remaining 1 cup chicken broth and 1/2 cup water and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in the rice along with 1/2 cup parmesan, the parsley and the remaining 2 tablespoon butter. Top with the remaining 1/4 cup parmesan and the pine nuts.

Great recipe - everyone ate it which is a huge bonus. Easy to do which is another plus. I used chicken sausages in mine. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag.

This is done in almost a flash, it's hearty, really filling, and a great example of great comfort food. I used veggie sausage in place of real meat because I wanted to lower the fat and, also, I really like them and even with the veggie sausage I skipped the added salt and found it wasn't needed. I found the recipe quite easy to follow and the use of two pans didn't bother me at all.

I love the wonderful creamy texture that this has. Very much like a risotto. Even tastes excellent with mild sausages, and I cut the salt back because the sausages are salty.
