So this risotto combines some of my favorite things. I love hot sausage. Any place that has it when I go out, I just have to have it. Even if it’s just an appetizer. It screams for me and I scream for it! And then mushrooms and asparagus, they are always on my list to get at the store. We all love them at home. So why not throw my favorite things into a big pot of creamy risotto? Eat it as your main dish or a side, either way your tummy will thank you.
