Baked Risotto with Sausage and Artichokes

  • Makes: 6 servings
  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Bake: 1 hr 10 mins 350°F
  • Stand: 5 mins


  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 1 medium fennel bulb, cored and chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup uncooked arborio or long grain white rice
  • 2 14 ounce can quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  • 2 medium carrots, shredded (1 cup)
  • 2 teaspoons snipped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine or chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup panko (Japanese-style bread crumbs)
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded Asiago cheese or Parmesan cheese (1 ounce)
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In an extra-large skillet, cook sausage, fennel, onion, and garlic over medium-high heat until sausage is brown and vegetables are tender. Drain off fat. Add rice; cook and stir for 1 minute.
  2. Add artichoke hearts, carrots, thyme, and pepper. Stir in broth and wine. Bring just to boiling. Transfer mixture to an ungreased 2-1/2-quart casserole. Bake, covered, about 1 hour or until rice is tender, stirring once halfway through baking.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine panko, cheese, and lemon peel; stir in melted butter. Sprinkle over sausage mixture. Bake, uncovered, about 10 minutes more or until mixture is heated through and crumbs are lightly browned. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
