"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Ingredients:  
8 oz. chicken stock concentrate
2 units. scallions
2 bell peppers
2 cloves garlic
1 lemon
1½ lbs. Italian pork sausage
1½ c. Arborio rice
½ c. shredded parmesan cheese
1 Tbs. Italian seasoning
4 tsp. olive oil
3 Tbs. butter

Directions:
Directions:
1. Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. In a medium pot, combine stock concentrates and 7 c. water. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to low. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Peel and mince garlic. Halve, core, and slice bell pepper into ½-inch-thick strips. Quarter lemon.
2. Remove sausage from casing; discard casing. Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes. Turn off heat. Using a slotted spoon, transfer sausage to a paper-towel-lined plate, leaving as much oil in pan as possible.
3. Heat pan with reserved oil over medium heat; add scallion whites, garlic, rice, and 1 tsp Italian Seasoning (you’ll use more later). TIP: If pan is dry, add another drizzle of olive oil. Cook, stirring, until scallion whites are softened and rice is translucent, 1-2 minutes. Add ½ cup stock; stir, scraping up any browned bits from bottom of pan, until liquid has mostly absorbed.
4. Repeat process with remaining stock—adding ½ cup at a time and stirring until liquid has mostly absorbed—until rice is al dente and mixture is creamy, 25-30 minutes. TIP: Depending on the size of your pan, you may need a little more or a little less liquid.
5. While risotto simmers, toss bell pepper on a baking sheet with a large drizzle of olive oil and 1½ tsp Italian Seasoning. (Use the rest of the Italian Seasoning as you like.) Season with salt and pepper. Roast on top rack until softened and lightly charred, 15-20 minutes.
6. Once risotto is done, stir in sausage, roasted bell pepper, half the Parmesan, and 3 Tbs. butter. Add a squeeze of lemon juice to taste and season with salt and pepper. Divide between bowls and sprinkle with scallion greens and remaining Parmesan. Serve with any remaining lemon wedges on the side.
