  • Preheat oven to 425F. Mix the butternut squash and olive oil in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Spread onto a baking sheet and roast until just caramelized, about 30 minutes.
  • In a large, deep skillet, or dutch oven, add 1 Tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and shallot and cook until soft, about 3-4 minutes. Mix in the rice and lemon zest, then add the wine. Cook until the wine is absorbed.
  • Add 3 cups of the stock in one cup at a time, letting each cup absorb fully before adding the next, then add the last cup of stock 1/4 Cup at a time until rice is cooked as desired (I used about a 1/2 cup).
  • Once all the stock is absorbed, remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice, butter, and Parmesan cheese and stir to combine.
  • Fold in the butternut squash and serve immediately.
