Here is the recipe for Michigan Butternut Squash Risotto featured on FOX 2 News Morning.

1lb. Box Arborio Rice
2 ea. Lg. Shallots (minced)
2 oz. Unsalted butter
1 cup Dry White Wine
2 qts. Chicken or Vegetable Stock
4 oz. Fresh Lobster Mushrooms
4 oz. Fresh Chicken of the Woods Mushrooms
4 oz. Fresh Chanterelle Mushrooms
2 lb. Butternut Squash (peeled, cubed small)
2 C Heavy Cream
4 oz. Parmesan Cheese (grated)
1 C Toasted Hazelnuts (crushed)
Few sprigs Fresh Sage

Method:
Sauté your shallots and butter in a large heavy bottomed pot or sauté pan. When the shallots are translucent add all the mushrooms. When the mushrooms have released all their liquid add the Arborio rice and toast over a medium flame for approximately one minute. Add the white wine and before it has all evaporated begin ladling in your warm stock a few ounces at a time and stirring constantly. Separately, coat half the cubed squash in olive oil and roast until tender in a 350° oven. Bring the cream and remaining squash to a simmer in a small pot and cook until squash is tender. In a food processor or vita prep puree the squash and cream mixture until smooth. When the risotto is tender but still al dente you can fold your roasted squash in and squash puree as well. Season the risotto with parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. To garnish sprinkle on top crushed toasted hazelnuts and sage leaves which have been lightly friend for 10 seconds in a small amount of canola oil at 350°.
