Sunday Dinner - Warren's send off

Warren is off for one of the biggest weeks of his career so we needed to send him with sustenance.  If you follow this blog, you know he likes sausage. Well he also likes risotto ...... so we made risotto sausage ... well actually it would be better described as sausage with some risotto.
3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 Tbsp butter
1 oz turkey bacon, chopped
8 oz bulk spicy Italian sausage
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp finely chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped bell pepper
2 oz mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup Arborio rice
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
Bring the broth to a simmer in a small saucepan. Keep warm over low heat.
In a separate saucepan, melt the butter.. Add the bacon and sausage and saute until golden brown. Add the onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms and saute until tender. Season with salt and pepper. Add the rice and stir to coat. Add the wine and simmer until the wine has almost completely evaporated. Add 1/2 cup of broth and stir until almost completely absorbed. Continue cooking the rice, adding the broth 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly and allowing each addition of broth to absorb before adding the next, until the rice is tender but still firm to the bite and the mixture is creamy, about 30 minutes total. Remove from the heat. Stir in the Parmesan. Serve immediately.
