    Olive oil cooking spray
    1 brown onion, finely chopped
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    1 1/2 cups arborio rice
    4 cups reduced-salt chicken stock, simmering
    6 extra-lean beef sausages
    250g punnet cherry tomatoes, halved
    1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley, chopped
    2 tbsp parmesan cheese, to serve


1 Heat a heavy-based saucepan over medium heat. Spray lightly with oil. Add onion and garlic. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until light golden.

2 Add rice. Stir to coat in onion mixture. Add 1 ladleful of hot stock, stirring until stock has been absorbed. Continue to add stock, 1 ladleful at a time, until all stock has been added and absorbed.

3 Meanwhile, heat a chargrill or frying pan over medium-high heat. Spray lightly with oil. Cook sausages for 10 minutes, turning often, or until cooked through. Thickly slice.

4 Stir sausages, tomatoes and parsley through rice mixture. Remove from heat. Cover. Stand for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon into bowls. Top with parmesan cheese. Serve.

Variation: For a spicier dish, use chorizo sausages instead of beef sausages.
