Turkey Sausage w/ Risotto

This meal was excellent. Thank goodness we had left overs. I made it for the two of us, but it is more than enough for four. Of course it must be a bit high in calorie, but if you don't make it on a weekly basis, it's a nice treat for those nights when you're craving comfort food, and I'm all about comfort food.

5 links of turkey sausage
1 1/2 Cups Arborio Rice
32 oz. Vegetable Broth
2 T Marsala Wine
1/2 onion - chopped
3 cloves garlic - chopped
4 T butter

Only one pot needed. Place butter in pot and brown onion and garlic. Add rice and coat with butter. Add some of the vegetable broth (do this a little at a time, stirring as you add). Add Marsala wine. The cooking process should take at least one half hour, so it would be a good idea to taste the rice to see if it's done.
B.Q. Turkey sausage - give yourself at least 15 - 20 minutes - coordinate rice with sausage so everything is done at the same time.
Slice cooked turkey thin, so it's one bite with rice.
Place risotto on either a soup dish or flat dish - place sliced sausage on top.
