Instructions

  1. Place the dried mushrooms in a small bowl and cover with 300ml (½ pint) hot water. Leave to soak for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Lift out the mushrooms, squeezing out the liquid and chop finely. Strain and reserve the liquid.
  2. In a large pan, melt the Bertolli and add the onion. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft but not browned. Add the fresh mushrooms and cook, stirring for about 2 minutes. Add the rice and cook, stirring for another 2 minutes. Stir in the dried mushrooms, seasoning and rosemary sprig.
  3. With the heat on high, add the wine and stir until it evaporates. Now begin to add the hot stock, a ladle at a time, and allow the rice to cook gently, stirring frequently, until the liquid has been absorbed. Continue in this way for 20-25 minutes until the rice is creamy and cooked but still has a slight bite.
  4. Before serving, remove the rosemary and stir in a generous knob of Bertolli. Cover and leave to stand for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Top with Parmesan shavings and serve with salad leaves.
