Risotto is widely served in northern Italy, where it is often preferred over pasta. Half of the mushrooms in this recipe are folded into the rice, lending it an earthy flavor; the remainder are roasted and used as a crisp, meaty garnish.

  • 3 tbsp. u


  1. Bring stock to a boil in a 2-qt. saucepan over medium and add porcini; cook until soft, 6–8 minutes. Strain, reserving mushrooms, and keep stock warm.
  2. Melt butter in a 6-qt.
