Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add squash; cook and stir 3 minutes. Add shallot; cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or until squash is almost tender. Stir in paprika, thyme, salt, and pepper. Add rice; stir to coat.
Add wine, if desired; cook and stir until wine is absorbed. Add broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring frequently until broth is absorbed before adding next 1/2 cup. Continue adding broth and stirring until rice is tender and mixture is creamy, about 20 to 25 minutes.
Sprinkle with cheese just before serving. (For a dairy-free risotto, omit the cheese, or replace it with a dairy-free version.)
