SW recipe: Sausage, pea and courgette risotto


  • 2 large courgettes (500g in total), cut into ½cm dice
  • 1 large onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 125 g arborio risotto rice
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 600 ml reduced-salt hot chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 grating of nutmeg
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 325 g frozen petit pois, thawed
  • 10 chicken sausages
  • 1 handful basil leaves, chopped, plus a few whole leaves to garnish
  • 30 g parmesan, shaved


  1. Spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil. Add the courgettes and cook over a medium-high heat for 5 mins until reduced by about a third. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  2. Spray the pan with a little more oil. Add the onion and cook over a medium heat for 5 mins until soft. Stir in the rice and garlic, cook for 1 min. Add a splash of stock, nutmeg, mustard and season with freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Keep stirring until the stock has been absorbed. Continue to add the stock, a splash at a time until it has all been absorbed, stirring continuously throughout. This should take about 15-20 mins.
  4. Meanwhile, spray another large non-stick frying pan with oil. Squeeze out small blobs of sausage meat into the pan and cook over a medium-high heat for 3-4 mins, turning once, until cooked through and deep golden.
  5. Stir the petit pois, cooked courgettes, cooked sausage and basil into the risotto, adding a splash of boiling water if it’s too thick. Cook for 2 mins until piping hot. Serve, scattered with the parmesan.
