Risotto With Butternut Squash & Sausage

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 6 mins

This is a great dish for company. Can make the day before and reheat it in the microwave. You can cook the squash in the PC but I find it easier just to steam the squash in another pot until soft but not mushy then add it to the risotto at the end.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add 2 tablespoons of butter to the PC and melt over medium heat.
  2. Add the sausage and onion, stirring often and breaking up the suasage with a wooden spoon, until the sausage loses its raw look, about 6 minutes.
  3. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the fat.
  4. Add the rice and cook, stirring often, until well coated about 2 minutes.

I made this on a whim the other night. I steamed the butternut squash and then mixed it in a bowl with some butter, salt, pepper and nutmeg and then spooned it onto the risotto. It was absolutely fantastic. Lots of pepper in the risotto helped.
