Butternut Squash Risotto
Friday night we had friends over whose husband was allergic to corn, their children were allergic to tree nuts and peanuts. So together we had gluten, dairy, corn, tree nuts, peanuts allergies. To top it off it was a Friday during Lent. So I wanted to go meatless. At first I thought Spaghetti. Easy peasy. Then I thought heck let's do risotto. It's creamy, yummy and easy. I saw some great butternut squash in the grocer's and picked up two. The hardest part about working with butternut is the slippery texture when your peeling it. Using a towel to hang on to it helps.
