  2. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; saute for 3 minutes. Add rice; stir to coat grains with butter. Stirring constantly, add stock, 1/2 cup at a time, adding more stock only when the previous amount has been absorbed. When the rice is cooked, about 30 minutes, stir in the squash, olives, cheese and parsley. Cook and stir for 4 minutes until the cheese is melted and mixture is hot throughout. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
