Keep cooking and stirring about 5 minutes more, until the rice turns glossy from the butter, and the onion starts to brown on the edges.

Pour in the white wine; cook, stirring constantly, until the wine evaporates.

Stir in the mashed squash and about one-third of the hot chicken stock; lower the heat to medium.

Cook and stir about 6 to 8 minutes, until the chicken stock has been absorbed by the rice.

Add half of the remaining chicken stock, and keep stirring until stock is absorbed.

Add the remaining stock, and continue stirring until the risotto is creamy.

Lastly, stir in the Romano cheese, and seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. welcomes your comments below (registration is NOT required).
