The squash can be roasted in advance, and then reheated in the risotto

Method

  1. Set oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6. Spread the squash out on a baking tray and spray with 1-2 sprays of oil, and turn the pieces in the oil. Cook in the oven for 20 -30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Pour 600ml water into a pan, add the stock cube and bring to the boil. Add the rice and onion, simmer for 15-20 mins, stirring occasionally, until the water is almost absorbed and the rice is just tender. Add more water if needed.
  3. Just before serving, stir the sage and season. Roughly chop the squash and pile on top.
