Autumn Risotto with Butternut Squash, Sage, and Pepitas

Autumn Risotto with Butternut Squash, Sage, and Pepitas

Risotto is amazing due to its ability to create a creamy sauce without a drop of cream—it’s all about the stirring! Roasted butternut squash, earthy sage, and nutty Parmesan cheese are folded in for a decidedly Autumnal dinner.


Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium pot, bring the stock concentrates and 2 ½ cups water to a simmer over low heat. Cut the butternut squash into ½-inch cubes if they aren’t already. Mince or grate the garlic. Halve, peel, and finely chop the shallot.

Roast the squash

Toss the butternut squash on a baking sheet with 2 teaspoons oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Place in the oven for 25-30 minutes, tossing halfway through cooking, until soft and golden brown.

Start the risotto

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and shallot and cook, tossing, 3-4 minutes, until very soft. Season with salt and pepper. Add the rice to the pan and cook, tossing, for 1-2 minutes, until rice looks translucent. Reduce heat to medium-low.

Add the stock

Make the risotto: in ¼ cup increments, add the warm stock to the pan and stir frequently, until the liquid absorbed by the rice. Continue this process until the rice is al dente and a loose, creamy sauce has formed, about 25-30 minutes.


Finely chop the sage, reserving a few small leaves for garnish.

Finish the risotto

When the risotto is al dente, stir the butternut squash, chopped sage, Parmesan, and 1 tablespoon butter into the pan. Season generously with salt and pepper.


Divide the risotto between plates and garnish with the pepitas and reserved sage leaves. Enjoy!
