Sausage and lentil simmer. This tastes so nice. I made it with pork and apple sausages and used chorizo instead of pancetta. Green lentils instead of puy lentils. I also used sweet potato instead of carrot and red wine vinegar instead of white. I also added a little bit of Worcestershire sauce. Delicious.

Cheddar Cheese Risotto: This might seem odd to Italians but it works beautifully: the starchy rice, the sharp Cheddar, both are the perfect counterpoint for each other. I make this on days when I need to escape to the kitchen and have a good, quiet, relaxing and mindless 20 minutes staring into the middle distance and stirring. I heartily recommend it.
