Step 1

Bring stock to a simmer in a saucepan.

Step 2

In a separate large non-stick skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the mushrooms, garlic, onion, and shallots; sauté for about 5 minutes.

Step 3

Add the rice and stir for 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat; stir in wine. Cook and stir for about 3-4 minutes; reduce liquid by half.

Step 4

Add broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly and allowing the liquid to absorb between additions. Cook just until creamy and rice is almost tender about 20 – 25 minutes. The rice should be just cooked and slightly chewy.

Step 5

Stir in the parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
