How do I make it ?
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.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
For risotto with a firmer rice texture, reduce the amount of broth to suit your preference.
For added colour, texture and flavour, cook and crumble 3 bacon slices; stir into cooked risotto along with the cheese.
