    This recipe is a favorite of mine taken from the Williams-Sonoma website. Toasted blanched almonds may be used instead of the hazelnuts.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a small saucepan over high heat, bring the stock to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and keep the liquid hot.
    2. 2
      In a medium, heavy saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and sauté the onion, stirring frequently, until it is soft and light brown, about 10 minutes. Add the squash and 4 teaspoons of the fresh sage or all the dried sage and sauté, stirring frequently for 2 minutes. Cover and cook until the squash is almost tender, about 6 minutes.
    3. 3
      Uncover the pan with the squash, add the rice and stir until a white spot appears in the center of the grains, about 1 minute. Add the wine and stir until absorbed, about 2 minutes. Add 3/4 cup of the broth, adjust the heat to simmer, if needed, so that the liquid bubbles and is absorbed slowly. Stir until the liquid is absorbed. Continue cooking, adding the liquid 3/4 cup at a time and stirring almost constantly, until the rice starts to soften, about 10 minutes. Continue cooking, adding the liquid 1/2 cup at a time and stirring almost constantly, until the rice is just tender but slightly firm in the center and the mixture is creamy, about 10 minutes more.
    4. 4
      Add the Parmesan cheese, 3 Tbs. of the nuts, the pepper and salt. Stir to mix well.
    5. 5
      To serve, spoon the risotto into a serving bowl or onto plates. Garnish with the remaining 1 Tbs. fresh sage, if using, and the remaining 1 Tbs. nuts.

      Wonderful combination of flavors, my whole family loved this dish. However, my butternut squash cubes did not cook in 6 minutes, and I cut them a bit smaller than dice size. Could be because I had a larger squash and a lot of squash. I just kept adding time and kept checking it. I didn't want it to be too soft since I knew the continued cooking and stirring after I added the rice would continue to break it down. I also added more Parmesan cheese. Several family members had seconds, and were very complimentary about this dish. Will definitely make it again!

      This is one of our favorite recipes. If I don't have hazelnuts around, I substitute chopped almonds. I also add chopped portobello mushrooms, sauteeing them just before I add the rice. Wonderful!

      Fabulous. We used walnuts instead of hazelnuts. Tasted great but this took about an hour to prep and cook. Next time, I'll make sure to have everything ready before we start cooking.
