Butternut Squash Risotto

This is a new recipe I tried recently and really liked.

Butternut Squash Risotto
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: about 40 minutes

2 Tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large shallot, peeled and chopped
1 cup chopped butternut squash
3/4 cup arborio or short grain rice
32 oz chicken broth
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh sage
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Melt butter in a large skillet. Add garlic and shallot; cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in squash and rice; cook and stir until rice grains are coated with butter. Slowly stir in broth, about 1/2 cup at a time, cooking over low heat and stirring until broth has been absorbed before adding more. When all of broth has been absorbed, stir in cheese and sage; cook for 1 minute more. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

Makes 6 servings.
