2 quarts soup stock
1 pound Italian sausage
1 small cabbage, sliced
1 large bunch turnips
2 cups rice
1/2 teaspoon saffron
1 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
salt and pepper to taste


Boil rice in hot soup stock with slices of sausage until rice is tender.

If turnip and cabbage are to be used, these must be half-cooked by frying slices of the vegetables in hot olive oil before adding to the soup stock and cooking until tender.

Add cheese shortly before removing rice from fire.

Serves 6.
