Mmmm, this Butternut Squash Risotto with Parmesan, Peas, & Shrimp is delicious. What a wonderful winter (and gluten-free) dish. While time-consuming to make, it’s really not all that difficult. This would be easy, yet an impressive dish to serve when entertaining. Risotto is also so easy to add a twist to make it your own. You can make it meatless, add chicken, kale, zucchini, lobster, pancetta, mushrooms, asparagus, broccoli, pumpkin, shaved Brussels sprouts . . . and the list goes on. The key to making a good risotto is to add the broth hot so it takes less time to heat, to continue adding broth for the rice to absorb and to stir constantly. This makes the rice plump, decadent and a perfect dish.
