How to Make Easy-Bake Risotto with Squash & Shrimp


  • 1Adjust oven rack to middle position, and heat oven to 450°.
  • 2Heat oil or butter in a heavy-bottom Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion and prosciutto or ham and squash; saute until tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • 3Stir in rice (can be removed from heat and covered for up to 2 hours in advance), then add wine, and simmer until the liquid has almost evaporated. Turn off heat. Add broth and water. Cover the pot with a sheet of heavy-duty foil, pressing the foil down so it’s concave and rests on the broth. Place a lid over the pot to ensure an even tighter seal.
  • 4Set pot in oven; cook for 25 minutes. Remove from oven. Use a potholder to remove lid and foil. Remembering that the handles are hot, set pot on low heat. Add shrimp now.
  • 5Stir mixture, adding water if necessary, until rice is cooked and a little chewy at the center, the liquid is creamy, and the flavors of the new ingredients have melded in, about 5 minutes. Stir in 1 cup of Parmesan cheese, peas, and/or parsley. Adjust seasonings, including salt and pepper, to taste.
  • 6Spoon into shallow soup plates, sprinkling each serving with shaved Parmesan.
