The pancetta and squash can be refrigerated overnight. Let return to room temperature before using.
The inspiration for this dish came from a restaurant in Sicily, but the origins of risotto actually lie in northern Italy. That may be why Müller-Thurgau, a grape widely grown in the Trentino region, pairs so well with it. Müller-Thurgau produces straw-colored wines with a distinctive herb-citrus scent.
