  • Heat dressing in large saucepan on medium heat. Add onions and rosemary; cook 2 to 3 min. or until onions are crisp-tender, stirring frequently. Stir in rice; cook and stir 2 min.
  • Stir 1/2 cup broth into rice mixture; cook on medium-low heat 4 min. or until most the broth is absorbed, stirring constantly. Repeat until all the broth has been added. (Rice should be tender, but firm. This will take about 35 min.)
  • Meanwhile, place squash in microwaveable dish. Add water; cover with waxed paper. Microwave on HIGH 8 min. or until squash is tender; drain.
  • Add squash to rice mixture; mix well. Add butter; stir until melted. Stir in cheese.


For risotto with a firmer rice texture, reduce the amount of broth to suit your preference.

Special Extra

For added colour, texture and flavour, cook and crumble 3 bacon slices; stir into cooked risotto along with the cheese.
