Jambalaya Risotto Recipe



Jambalaya Risotto Recipe

I love risotto, but I don't always love the time and stirring it takes to get the creamy goodness. I found a slow-cooker risotto recipe and thought it was too good to be true. I decided to adapt a jambalaya recipe for this dish.
Ingredients :
2-1/2 cups chicken broth
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
1-1/2 cups tomato sauce
1-1/4 cups uncooked arborio rice
3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
1/2 pound uncooked shrimp (31-40 per pound), peeled and deveined and tails removed
1/2 pound fully cooked andouille sausage links, sliced
2/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, optional

In a 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker, combine the first 13 ingredients. Cook, covered, on high for 1-3/4 hours. Stir in shrimp, sausage and, if desired, cheese. Cook until shrimp turn pink and rice is tender, 10-15 minutes longer. Remove bay leaf.
