  • Prep Time:10 minutes
  • Cook Time:20 minutes
1. Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, breaking up meat into small pieces with a spoon. Add mushroom antipasto and fennel and cook until sausage is cooked through and lightly browned, about 5 more minutes.
2. Add water, orzo, and radicchio to remaining sausage in skillet and bring to a simmer. Partially cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until orzo is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12 to 15 minutes.
3. Remove skillet from heat, stir in snap peas, Alouette, and lemon dill sauce and season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to bowls and top evenly with Parmesan and fennel fronds before serving.
