When I find risotto on a menu, I know I have to get it. You can bring the joys of risotto home with this Sausage, Tomato, and Roasted Garlic Parmesan Risotto. When I studied abroad in Italy for college, I was on a mission to find risotto as often as I could. And now, every time I go back, I do the same and hunt down risotto.
Making risotto was always somewhat intimidating to me. I would hear about how difficult it is to cook. Lots of stirring and the gradual adding of liquid sounded complicated so I avoided it for a long time. But it is really not that difficult, it just takes a little time and attention with the stirring. Just get comfortable, grab a glass of wine, and settle in for some one-on-one personal time with your risotto. You can do it, too! It is definitely worth the effort and this Sausage, Tomato, and Roasted Garlic Parmesan Risotto will likely become a family favorite!
Because the moisture content is important to risotto, you want to use the right ingredients! That is where Hunt’s Recipe Ready “Pre-measure 2TBS” Paste Pouches are perfect! One pouch is perfect for this recipe and gives the risotto a well rounded tomato flavor without extra water. Where have these been all my life?!?
I love these new paste pouches because you do not have to waste so much paste from what is leftover in a can. They are recipe ready which means easy to use! Just tear and squeeze! These pre-measured 2 Tablespoon pouches are new from Hunt’s and so incredibly convenient. Find more tomato paste inspiration here! I also find that tomato paste has a depth of flavor that other tomato sauces and products can not match. These paste pouches are the perfect addition to this dish!
The quality of Parmesan in this Sausage, Tomato, and Roasted Garlic Parmesan Risotto is extremely important. The cheese is a primary flavor and so you want to use ingredients that taste good as it will just make the dish better. If you use the pre-ground, cheese in a can stuff, it will not taste as good. You get out of it what you put into it!
I hope you love this risotto as much as we do!
