SAUSAGE & BEAN RISOTTO
' Many people believe that the Risotto is a dish best left to the professionals..... Rubbish , The only secret to a great Risotto is the quality of the stock you use, so once you have your base risotto made this Sausage & Bean version is as simple as chips '
When making this risotto , or any other risotto for that matter it is important to get as much flavour as you can into your stock. If you are making your risotto from scratch then when you are adding the stock to the rice , only ever stir it in one direction as this helps get the starch out of the rice and the flavour in.

- 2 Fresh Sausages (Any Flavour)
- 1 Tin of Baked Beans
