Add broth and butternut squash mixture one cup at a time with ladle and stir frequently until rice has absorbed almost all liquid. Do not allow the mixture to become dry. Continue to add broth one cup at a time until rice is al dente.
Remove pan from heat and stir in cheese and herbs. Add butter and stir quickly to completely melt into risotto. Season with salt and pepper.
