This might be one of the most searched recipes on my blog. With all of the flavors of fall, it’s a perfect weeknight meal that takes less than an hour to prepare. I’m from the school of stirring the risotto until the rice is tender, and I use this time to decompress while I’m cooking. The cubes of butternut squash add a sweetness that pairs perfectly with the asparagus.

Because pasta alone should be its own food group. I do try to cut down on sugar and carbs, but on a cheat day, I eat spaghetti. I love it. And my homemade marinara sauce is easy.

Pair this dish with a green salad, and you’re golden.
