“Baked rice is underrated. Take this easy version for instance: caramelized onions, spiced up Italian sausage, and thick spoonfuls of mascarpone cheese give this dish flavor and body. Make sure not to overcook the rice—it should still be al dente—and feel free to add some herbs here or make it vegetarian by swapping in mushrooms for the Italian sausage.”
