    3                    Links parsley/cheese sausage
      1/2   lb           - Luganega sausage,
                         - (commercially made)
    1       qt           Meat broth
      1/3   c            Finely chopped onion
    3       tb           Butter
    2       tb           Dry white wine
    1 1/2   c            Arborio rice
      3/4   c            Grated Parmesan cheese
                         Freshly ground black pepper
   REMOVE THE CASINGS from the sausage and break up the
   sausage. Bring the broth to a simmer. In a casserole,
   soften the chopped onion in half the butter. Add the
   sausage meat and brown it. Raise heat, sprinkle on the
   wine, and let it evaporate. Add the rice, stirring to
   coat all the grains with the fat. Saute 1 to 2
   minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and start adding
   broth, a ladleful at a time. Stir often and add more
   broth only as the rice begins to dry out. Cook for 35
   to 45 minutes, or until the rice is al dente and has
   absorbed almost all its liquid. (If you run out of
   broth before then, use boiling water.) Stir in the
   remaining butter and all the grated cheese. Taste for
   salt and pepper. Serve at once.
