This risotto with sausages and spinach has an extra special guest hitching along for the ride. Instead of using the usual wine to make the risotto, you actually use beer. It gives the risotto an extra depth of taste, especially if you pair it with good pork sausages. I added spinach to the risotto to make my kids eat something green, but it does actually go very well in the dish! At the moment there are all sorts of spinach-type things popping up everywhere in the shops. They probably should be popping up in my garden so I can go all Mother Nature on you and write “and the spinach I gathered fresh from my own garden….blah, blah”, but as I’m terribly lazy when it comes to gardening, all I can offer you is spinach grown in a local market-garden…..it’s almost like it comes from my garden, except I didn’t do any of the work, and I have to pay for it.
