Bella Sun Luci Butternut Squash Risotto

Bella Sun Luci Butternut Squash Risotto Serves: 8


  • 3/4 lb butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 2 cups Bella Sun Luci Sun Dried Tomato Risotto
  • 8 cups chicken stock
  • 4 tablespoons Bella Sun Luci Olive Oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 oz unsalted butter


  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  • Cover a baking pan with parchment paper and spread the peeled and cubed butternut squash in a single layer on the pan. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil over the squash and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Roast for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • While the squash is roasting, bring the chicken stock to a boil in a saucepan.
  • In a separate large stock pot, sauté the diced yellow onion with 2 teaspoons of olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. After onion is translucent, turn the flame up to high and add the 2 cups of Bella Sun Luci Sun Dried Tomato Risotto. Stir constantly for two minutes on high.
  • After two minutes, add 1 cup of boiling chicken stock to risotto, constantly stirring.
  • Turn heat down to medium and continue cooking, stirring constantly and adding ½ cup of boiling chicken stock at a time until each is absorbed. Always keep the mixture soupy.
  • After you have used all of the chicken stock and the risotto is cooked al dente, turn off flame and add butternut squash and stir. Add 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese and stir in the butter. If needed add more stock to insure the risotto is slightly soupy and glossy.
