  • SQUASH: Combine squash, olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon sage, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and dash of pepper in a jelly-roll pan; toss well to coat.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until tender and beginning to brown, stirring every 7 minutes.
  • Set aside; keep warm.
  • RISOTTO: Bring 1 1/2 cups water and broth to a simmer in a medium saucepan (do not boil). Keep warm.
