Personal Notes:
This is the risotto that we grew up with - while there are many variations to this dish, such as adding seafood, cooked asparagus or squash, this was made by our mother with ingredients that were on hand and inexpensive. When we didn't have sausages, our mom used squash (zucca) - how I hated it and vowed never to eat rice again once we came to America - I was so wrong - I love making it and enjoy it often -
