Sausage and Broccolini Risotto
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 bunch broccolini, roughly chopped (about 8 ounces)
- 12 ounces sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
- 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
- 1 medium carrot, finely chopped
- 1 cup arborio rice
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/3 cup dry white wine
- 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
- 1 14 -ounce can diced tomatoes
- 1 cup grated fontina cheese
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a Dutch oven or ovenproof pot over high heat. Add the broccolini and stir-fry until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate using a slotted spoon. Add the sausage, onion and carrot to the pot and cook, breaking up the meat, until browned, about 5 more minutes. Add the rice and garlic and cook, stirring, 1 more minute.
Add the wine to the pot and cook until evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth, tomatoes and 1 cup water; cover and bring to a boil. Transfer the pot to the oven and bake until the rice is tender, about 15 minutes.
Remove the pot from the oven. (Don't worry if the risotto seems wet; it will thicken when you add the cheese.) Vigorously stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and the cheese until creamy, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the broccolini and divide among bowls.
