I love the internet for finding just the right recipe when I need to cook something. Tonight, I knew I needed something relatively quick to cook. I could have made spaghetti but I didn’t have any pasta noodles, at all, in the cupboard. I did have pork sausage and risotto rice and veggies so I googled sausage risotto and found this recipe adapted from Martha Steward Everyday’s Tomato and Sausage Risotto.
It fit the bill for being relatively quick and including only ingredients that I had on hand.
I also picked up a bushel of shelling peas today from Brad’s Produce for $45. This bushel will last our family for the entire year. It is a simple process, albeit a bit time consuming, to shell the peas and then you need only freeze them. No washing, blanching or other processing required. I use a FoodSaver vacuum sealer to ensure that the peas stay fresh through the year.
