  • 400 gr arborio rice
  • 100 gr luganega sausage

In the meanwhile add the skinned and cut luganega sausage and the olive oil to sauté in a pan.
Add the rice to toast, and then simmer with cider and add curry. Wash the apple and cut it in cubes.
Add it to the rice and wet the whole with the broth. Keep adding broth if needed until the rice is ready. Wait a few minutes before serving.
