Winter Squash Risotto
“Sweet winter squash and earthy shiitake mushrooms are delicious in this creamy risotto.”
5 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth, or vegetable broth
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 medium shallots, thinly sliced
3 cups chopped peeled winter squash
2 cups shiitake mushroom caps, thinly sliced
½ teaspoon dried thyme
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
⅛ teaspoon crumbled saffron threads, (optional)
1 cup arborio rice
½ cup dry white wine, or dry vermouth
½ cup finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
Place broth in a medium saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat so the broth remains steaming, but is not simmering.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in squash and mushrooms; cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms give off their liquid, about 5 minutes. Add thyme, salt, pepper and saffron (if using); cook for 30 seconds. Add rice; stir until translucent, about 1 minute. Add wine (or vermouth) and cook, stirring, until almost absorbed by the rice, about 1 minute.
Stir in ½ cup of the hot broth; reduce heat to a gentle simmer and cook, stirring constantly, until the liquid has been absorbed. Continue adding the broth ½ cup at a time, stirring after each addition until all the liquid has been absorbed, until the rice is tender and creamy, 30 to 40 minutes total. (You may have some broth left.) Remove from the heat and stir in cheese.
Marge's Tomato Tart
2 Large Tomatoes
1 Summer Squash
1 Large Potato
1/4 Cup Chopped Red Onion
2 Cups Cheese
2 Eggs, Beaten
1 Teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 9" pie plate with Pam. Cut tomatoes into slices. Cut Zucchini, squash, and potato into thin slices. Combine zucchini, squash, potato, and red onion with 1 cup cheese, eggs, and seasoning. Arrange 1/2 of the tomato slices on bottom of pie plate. Spoon vegetable mixture over tomatoes, pressing slightly to flatten. Arrange the rest of tomatoes on top, then sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake until veggies are tender and glazed (1 hour).
(Original recipe calls for Swiss cheese but cheddar or any combo of what you have is fine)
