Butternut Squash Risotto


This would make a great accompaniment to a chicken dish. I made it just on its own and although it was good, it didn't have a lot to offer to stand on its own. It could also be that the squash I used wasn't too flavorful. I do recommend it as a side though!

Ingredients:
7 cups (or more) chicken broth
3 tbsp butter (I used light butter)
1 1/4 cups finely chopped onion
1 2-pound butternut squash, peeled, halved, seeded, cut into 1/2 to 3/4 inch dice (about 3 cups)
2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary, divided
2 cups (about 13.5 oz) arborio rice
1/2 cup dry white wine
4 cups (packed) baby spinach leaves (about 4 oz) - I used frozen spinach, thawed it out and used only about 1 cup in the recipe
1/2 cup freshly ground Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese (about 1.5 oz)

Directions:
Bring 7 cups broth to boil in large saucepan. Cover and reduce heat to low.

Melt butter in a heavy large pot over medium heat. Add onion and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Add squash and 1 1/2 tsp rosemary, saute 4 minutes to coat with butter.

Add rice and stir 2 minutes. Add wine and simmer until evaporated, about 1 minute. Add 7 cups hot broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered until rice is just tender and risotto is creamy and slightly soupy, adding more broth by 1/4 cupfuls as needed to maintain consistency. Stir occasionally and simmer for about 18 minutes. Stir in spinach and parmesan cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Transfer risotto to large bowl. Sprinkle with blue cheese and remaining 1/2 tsp rosemary and serve.

So I made this last week and added pre-cooked chicken breast (at the time I added the squash). I also added mushrooms because I didn't realize I had no spinach until I was halfway through the recipe! Allen and I both liked it but found it a little bland. However, I've been eating it as leftovers and it's much better re-heated.... and with hot sauce (as is everything)!! I would make this again for a special occasion or something but it's too time-consuming otherwise...

Yeah, we thought it was a bit bland too. It was definitely better reheated!
