You’ll also need…
- 1.5 litre ovenproof dish, about 5cm deep
- Heat the oven to 170°C/ 150°C fan/gas 3½ and put in a shallow 1.5 litre ovenproof dish in to warm. Melt the butter in a medium, deep non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat, then add the shallots and fry for 5-8 minutes until translucent. Stir in the rice, squash, sage and garlic so everything gets a good coating of butter. Fry for another minute.
- Add the wine and bring the mixture up to a simmer, then bubble for 2-3 minutes. Add the stock and bring back to a gentle simmer.
- Pour the mixture into the warmed dish and bake, uncovered, in the oven for 45 minutes. Stir in the cheese for the last 5 minutes. Serve, sprinkled with the remaining sage and extra cheese.
