Acorn or Butternut Squash Risotto

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Tish

This risotto is easy and fairly quick after you peel and cut up the squash. Good healthy alternative. Could be used as a main meal or a side dish

Top Review by Tony Spackman

Not a good squash recipe lacked a definate flavor. Look more like the trash then an edible meal
