Baked Butternut Squash Risotto

Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 46 mins
Yield 8 servings (serving size: about 2/3 cup)
The traditional method for making creamy risotto involves adding the stock or broth to the rice 1/2 cup at a time and stirring constantly. This "hands-off" version calls for baking the rice mixture in a Dutch oven instead of cooking it on the stovetop. We got great results using a cast-iron Dutch oven, but you can use any type of ovenproof Dutch oven. It needs to be one that does not have plastic handles.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion (about 1medium)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup uncooked Arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 3 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 small butternut squash, peeled and chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
