If you're looking to add a little extra holiday cheer to your Thanksgiving meal, this white wine butternut squash risotto is an autumnally appropriate side that adds a touch of class to the table.
This rich and creamy dish incorporates fall flavors such as sage and pine nuts as well. The butternut squash risotto recipe calls for seasonal spices like freshly grated nutmeg too. The fun part -- in addition to the constant stirring required with preparing risotto -- is the addition of dry white wine. While the alcohol will burn off, the white wine is still a lovely addition. Christina of Sweet Pea's Kitchen notes the recipe can be customized to cater to vegetarians by using vegetable broth.
