<p>Sweet, buttery squash with onion and garlic in Arborio rice is enhanced with the nutty flavor of Sargento®&nbsp;Parmesan Cheese. A little extra sprinkle of cheese and toasted pecans completes this comfort-food dish.</p>

  1. Heat broth to a boil in medium saucepan; reduce heat to low and keep hot.
  2. Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add squash, onion and garlic; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add rice; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently.
  3. Add 1 cup hot broth to the skillet mixture; cook until most of the broth is absorbed, stirring occasionally. Repeat until rice is slightly firm to the bite and squash is tender; keep rice mixture at a simmer.
  4. Remove from heat; stir in 3/4 cup cheese, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Transfer to serving bowls; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Sprinkle with toasted pecans, if desired.
