    1 1/2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth 
    1 cup water 
    1 bag (16 oz) Green Giant™ Fresh Butternut Squash Soup Blend 
    2 cups water 
    2 tablespoons olive oil 
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 
    1/2 cup uncooked Arborio rice 
    1/4 cup dry white wine or water 
    1 1/2 cups chopped deli rotisserie chicken 
    1/4 teaspoon salt 
    1/2 teaspoon pepper 
    1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg 
    3 or 4 sage leaves, thinly sliced 
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • Directions

    1. In 2-quart saucepan, heat broth and 1 cup water to boiling over medium heat. Reduce heat to low. Keep warm. 
    2. In 2-quart saucepan, heat soup blend and 2 cups water to boiling over medium-high heat. Cover and reduce heat to medium; cook about 20 minutes or until vegeables are tender. Drain over medium bowl, reserving 1/2 cup water. 
    3. Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add garlic; cook about 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add rice; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until rice begins to turn brown. Add wine; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until wine is absorbed. Pour 1/2 cup of the hot broth mixture into rice; allow broth to absorb completely, and add more broth 1/2 cup at a time. Risotto will cook in 20 to 30 minutes, using all the broth.
