    From Bon Appetit. Served this with a side of roasted salmon. Absolutely divine. I used a bit more stock than called for near the end of cooking time, just to make it a little creamier.

      Loved this! I have always wanted to make butternut squash risotto but expected that the squash would get "mushy" during the cooking process. That was not the case at all and the flavors of the rosemary and cheeses blended perfectly. I made half the recipe since there are only two of us here and it was plenty as a side with our pork tenderloin. In fact, I used the leftovers for soup! Added cooked cut up chicken, more chicken broth, more rosemary, more parmesan, more spinach and a can of canneloni (sp?) beans. It was wonderful a second time too!

      This recipe really has the "Mmmmmmm" factor for me. I loved the sweetness of the squash with the sharpness of the cheese. It's a 5 star recipe for me, but DH gaves it 4. Mind you, baring in mind the fact that he doesn't really like blue cheese, this just goes to prove what a great recipe this is! All things being equal (plus the fact that I do most of the cooking and post the reviews) I have made an executive decision and hearby award 5 stars. PS: the recipe is easy to follow, easy to make and the quantities are just right (although I expect my hand may have 'accidentally slipped' when it came to adding the wine and cheese!).
