Sage? Sage is good with squash, I believe.

A little bit of sizzled bacon perks anything up!

Ah. Imagine you may have already made and eaten the risotto by now blush. Hope it was tasty!

sage fab, about 10 mins before the end. Also goat's cheese v.v.yummy with b'nut squash.

chilli oil to roast the butternut squash in.

and obviously, lots of black pepper?

Chili flakes might go ok with butternit squash (not as well as the sage).

If you're not veggie, then some crisped bacon maybe

Great idea re: chilli oil. DP puts in chilli flakes which is a bit much hmm

crossed posts, and I don't fancy a butternit...

chilli and crisp bacon

Thanks for all the replies.

I added sage and lots of parmesan. Sadly no goats cheese and we don't eat chilli. I roasted the squash with sage as well which helped I think?
