Ingredients

    1.5 TBS Olive Oil
    5 oz. Jimmy Dean's Reduced Fat Pork Sausage
    Italian Seasoning
    1 Medium Shallot, minced
    2 Garlic Cloves, minced
    1.5 Cups Arborio Rice
    3 Cups Swanson's Organic, Low Sodium Chicken Broth
    1.5 Cups Water
    1/3 Cup Dry White Wine
    1 Cup Peas
    1 oz Smart Balance Buttery Spread Light
    1.5 oz Marscapone or Creme Fraiche
    1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
    Kosher Salt
    Finely Ground Black Pepper

Directions

1. Lightly brown sausage in .5 T. oil. Reserve.
2. Heat remaining oil in a 5 qt. saute pan. Add shallots, and sweat until translucent. Add garlic, and cook 1 additional minute.
3. Add rice, and parch, coating the grains in the oil for 1 min.
4. Add 1/2 of the stock, and let simmer, stirring occasionally. When the stock is reduced to nearly dry, add the second 1/2, and repeat the process, adding the remaining stock/water and white wine. Check the rice to make sure that it is tender. If not add more stock, and repeat the process a fourth time.
5. When rice is cooked, and stock is reduced, stir in the butter, creme fraiche, Parmesan, peas, and Sausage. Season to taste.
