Spinach Mushroom Risotto

Posted on November 9, 2009. Filed under: side dish |

One of Jon’s top 5 favorite foods is risotto. The great part is, he likes the stuff from the box. I was shopping at Henry’s a couple weeks ago and came across an Organic Spinach Mushroom Risotto. Perfect, throw that guy in the cart.

I was in the kitchen baking something (ha, go figure); a pound cake, or loaf cake, or something along those lines. And I realized the man probably wanted some dinner. So I browsed the fridge to see what extra veggies and meat I could throw into the risotto. And so the dish was created… he loved it! Cheap, easy, quick, so I loved it too.

Serves 2-3 (2 as a main dish, 3 as a side dish)
1 box Risotto (I use vegetable stock instead of water)
1 cup sliced mushrooms
2 cups spinach, chopped
2 sausage links, cooked
1/2 cup grated romano cheese

Cook the risotto according to package directions. Once the rice is simmering in the water, add the mushrooms.

Cook the sausage in a separate pan until browned. Set aside.

About 2 minutes before the risotto is done, toss in the spinach, cooked sausage and romano cheese. Serve immediately.
