My kids & hubby LOVED this recipe, but for me I am a fan of more savory risotto recipes. So I tried to add things to make it more to my taste buds - I amended the recipe as per other feedback and doubled the squash & rice amount, but I also added garlic with the onions, and placed about 2/3 cup chopped brown mushrooms with the 4th cup of broth and then added a pinch of cinnamon & allspice and parsley for some more flavor. I would also recommend that you wait until the VERY end to add the squash (not half up front as per recipes directions). My experience with risotto is that you must let the liquid absorption happen before adding the flavoring ingredients. In this case, the thickness of the squash interfered with the broth absorption and made it more difficult to stir and it would sometimes stick to the bottom...
