Set aside. Heat olive oil over medium heat; add onions and sauté gently for 1 to 2 minutes, until translucent and not browned. Add rice stirring constantly for another 2 minutes. Pour in the wine, add the butternut squash and lentils, continue to stir. Add 1 cup of stock, lower the heat and cook stirring occasionally for about 15-20 minutes adding stock as needed until rice is tender and creamy. Season with salt and pepper, finish with parmesan cheese, heavy cream and fresh herbs. Top risotto with lobster medallions and decorate each plate with a shell.
