  • 1
    In 1 1/2 quart saucepan, heat vegetable broth over medium-high heat just until simmering. Keep liquid at a simmer while preparing risotto.

    Meanwhile, in 5-quart Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook onion and squash in oil 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, just until onion starts to soften. Add wine; cook until liquid is almost completely evaporated. Stir in rice and 1 teaspoon of the garlic-and-herb seasoning; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until light brown.
  • 3
    Stir in 1 cup hot broth. Cook uncovered about 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until broth is absorbed; repeat with 2 more cups broth, adding 1 cup at a time. Stir in remaining 1 cup broth. Cook about 3 minutes longer, stirring frequently, until rice is just tender and mixture is creamy. Stir in remaining 2 teaspoons garlic-and-herb seasoning, the cheese and spinach just until spinach wilts. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

Many grocery and warehouse stores sell packages of ready-to-use cut-up butternut squash, which really saves on prep time. If this product is not available, a 1 1/4-lb butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cubed will yield about 2 cups.
