Published in Cook's Illustrated March 2007. Risotto's labor-intensive reputation is enough to turn many cooks away. But this Butternut Squash Risotto uses a method that eliminates the need for continuous stirring, which allows you to tend to other dishes. Infusing the broth with the squash's seeds and fibers helps to reinforce the earthy squash flavor. Cook's Illustrated found that a 2-pound squash consistently yields a cup or so more than the 3 1/2 cups in step 1; this can be added to the skillet along with the squash scrapings in step 2.
