Ingredients
  

  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 4 cups chicken broth, heated
  • 1/3 cup finely grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 tsp dried sage

Instructions
 

  • In a heavy-bottomed pan over medium-heat, melt the butter. Add the squash and season with salt and pepper. Cook the squash until the edges are a softened, about 8 minutes.
  • Add in the rice and stir. Add the wine and cook until almost all of the wine is cooked off, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and add in 1/2 cup of broth. Cook, stirring, until the liquid is fully absorbed. Add the broth a 1/2 cup at a time, stirring and cooking until liquid is absorbed each time before adding more broth. This should take about 35-40 minutes.
  • Stir in the parmesan and sage. Serve immediately.

Notes

This dish gets creamy from all of the stirring. Don't give up!
Top with additional parmesan if desired.
