Directions

Heat the olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the butternut squash and saute until just starting to soften, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic and onions and saute until fragrant and translucent, 2 minutes longer. Add the orzo and continue cooking another 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour in the wine and cook until absorbed.

Gradually add the chicken broth while stirring. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook until the liquid is almost absorbed and the orzo is tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Stir in the Parmesan, half-and-half and sage. Season with salt and pepper and serve warm.

    This recipe is good as written, however didn't have half-and-half so I tweaked it a smidge by swapping the 1/4 cup half-and-half with Plain Greek Yogurt then added, a dash of Cayenne for a little poke. To the reviewer that found it bland....you've touched on a major pet peeve, TASTE ALONG THE WAY AND CERTAINLY BEFORE SERVING! If you find it bland adjust it... add more salt/ pepper, the most common fix, or herbs/spices or whatever you need to make it good; don't throw it out just because you as a cook failed to taste and adjust!

    Made this as written except didn't have fresh sage, used about 1/3 tablespoon dried sage instead. We found it extremely bland and were very disappointed. Ended up throwing most of it away. A big waste of good ingredients.
