Recipe Ingredients:

2 (14.5-ounce) cans chicken broth - divided use
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 cups arborio rice
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 cup LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
1/2 cup OCEAN SPRAY® CRAISINS® Original Sweetened Dried Cranberries
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and white pepper to taste
Additional freshly grated Parmesan cheese, if desired

Cooking Directions:

  1. Bring chicken broth to a boil in medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low; keep warm.
  2. Melt butter and oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes. Add rice; cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes. Add wine; simmer, stirring frequently, until all liquid is absorbed. Stir in pumpkin.
  3. Add 3/4 cup chicken broth to rice. Reduce heat; simmer, stirring frequently, until absorbed. Continue adding broth, 1/2 cup at a time, allowing each addition to be absorbed before adding more broth. Rice should be tender but still firm to the bite and mixture should be creamy.
