Preparing fregola with sausage is very similar to preparing risotto. Peel and finely chop the onion and sauté it in a saucepan with a little extra virgin olive oil. When slightly browned, add the crumbled sausage and cook for a couple of minutes, stirring to prevent burning.
After a couple of minutes, add the fregola, let it toast a little, then pour in the vegetable stock and cook for 15/20 minutes, stirring from time to time. By the end it should be creamy but not too soupy.
When almost ready, season with saffron and stir.
When the fregola with sausage is ready, turn off the heat, add a generous amount of grated Sardinian pecorino and garnish with fresh chopped parsley. Serve hot. Enjoy!
