Simple and hearty butternut squash risotto dish.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 5 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped

  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 1 pound mashed, cooked butternut squash
  • 8 tablespoons finely shredded Parmesan cheese, divided

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Pour broth in a medium saucepan, cover, and heat over medium-low heat until warm, about 10 minutes.
