Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

  • Chicken 165° F |

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut mushrooms into 1/4" slices.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Remove Italian sausage from casing, if necessary.

  2. 2

    Cook the Sausage and Mushroom

    Place a large pot over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add Italian sausage, mushrooms, and white portions of green onions to hot pan.

    Break into smaller pieces until no pink remains and sauasge reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

  3. 3

    Start the Risotto

    Add rice to hot pot. Stir occasionally until rice is opaque, 1-2 minutes.

    Add 2 cups boiling water from small pot, seasoning blend, peas, and chicken broth concentrate. Rice should just be covered by water. Stir occasionally until nearly all water is absorbed.

  4. 4

    Finish the Risotto

    Add 1 cup boiling water and stir often again until nearly all water is absorbed. Repeat this process, stirring occasionally, 13-15 minutes.

    Taste risotto as you cook, checking for tenderness. When rice has no more “bite” or crunch, it's done. There may be water left.

    Remove from burner. Stir in garlic salt, softened cream cheese, and a pinch of salt and pepper until creamy.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing risotto with goat cheese (breaking up if needed) and green portions of green onions. Bon appétit!
