Butternut Squash Risotto

Enjoy the sweet, rich, and slightly nutty taste of butternut squash in this elegant Italian-style risotto. We created this delicious gourmet side dish by blending quality ingredients like butternut squash, onion, garlic, and spices with our creamy Arborio rice. You'll love how the individual kernels plump, creating a rich, creamy sauce while the rice grains remain separate and al dente. Preparing this tasty risotto takes about 20 minutes and requires minimal stirring. It's an easy, convenient way to add gourmet flair to any meal.

    I have to say I usually like Lundberg products but this one has SO MUCH SALT in it I felt like my throat got a salt burn after I ate it. Will never buy again. What food product needs 500 mg of salt? Lundberg, please lighten up on the sodium.

    I'm battling with celiac disease and what foods I can and can not eat. Lundberg products have helped with this transaction tramendously. I love the taste of this product and my children like it as well

    How long to sauté the rice- toss to coat?   With packaged food I shouldn't have to look up additional instructions in a cookbook.  Good, not great.   $2 worth of grain to with frozen peas and a duck egg.

    Renee, One of our goals is to enable consumers to make healthy choices for their lifestyle. So happy to hear our products have been helpful to you in that way and that your family likes the product too!

    Josh, Sorry for the confusion. We will keep your comment in mind. You should only have to sauté the rice for a minute or two. We hope you enjoyed the risotto.
