We think butternut squash tastes good in just about anything. Complimenting a simple wild rice dish here, it adds just the right amount of sweetness.

How to Make It

Place water and rice in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes. Turn off heat; let stand, covered, 25 minutes. Drain. Heat a skillet over medium heat; add olive oil. Add squash, shallot, rosemary, and 1/8 teaspoon salt; cook 10 minutes. Add rice, pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt to squash, stirring to combine.
