Squash risotto (risotto con la zucca)

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 \N Onion; peeled and minced
1 teaspoon Olive oil
500 grams Squash; peeled and cubed
400 grams Rice (arborio or carnaroli)
1 \N Glass dry white wine
1 litre Vegetable broth; very hot
\N \N Pepper
\N \N Grated Parmigiano

In a nonstick pan, slowly fry onion in oil until translucent. Add squash, cook for ¼ hour approx., stirring often, till very tender. At this point, it must be tender enough to be pureed with a wooden spoon. Do that. Add rice, stir some more, for a few minutes. Add wine, stir till it has been absorbed. Add broth, a ladle at a time, stirring all the while. When almost done (taste to check, approximate time 20 min.), add Parmigiano and ground pepper. Stir another couple of minutes, serve.


1. You can replace white wine with Marsala. The flavor will be richer.

2. The quantity of broth given is approximative. Depending on the rice you use, the degree of humidity it was kept in, etc, you will need to use slightly less or more
