Directions

  4. In a heavy saucepan heat the olive oil over medium low heat.
  5. Add the onion and cook until softened.
  6. Add the rice and stir to coat in the onion and oil, cooking it for a few minutes.
  7. Add the wine and cook until the wine is almost absorbed.
  8. Begin to add broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring continually until the rice has cooked for 10 minutes.
  9. Add the squash, stir, and continue to add broth, stirring until each addition has been absorbed until the rice is tender but still slightly firm to the bite.
  10. Stir in the butter and 1/3 cup of the grated cheese.
  11. Serve in individual plates sprinkled with some chopped sage.
