Risotto with sausage and pumpkin Italian recipe

Risotto with Pumpkin and sausage is an exquisite dish typical of cold seasons. The Pumpkin delights us from the beginning of autumn until the end of winter.

Here is Giovanna’s recipe for risotto with Pumpkin and sausage quick and easy to prepare


Ingredients for four people:

320gr Rice

500gr. Pumpkin 🎃 piled and finely cubed

200g Fresh sausage or minced meat

50g Butter

Vegetable broth Q.B.

One shallot

1/2 glass of White Wine

60g. Grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese



Chili pepper (optional)

At first, we need to prepare the sauté of Pumpkin and sausage.

  • Chop the onion and sauté it with oil and the peeled and chopped sausage.

  • Then blend with the white wine and let it evaporate.


  • Add the Pumpkin and the Chilly.


  • And when the Pumpkin is stewed, add the rice and sauté and the other ingredients for a while. Mix all well.
