Wine Spots Carneros Pinot Noir

Mushroom Risotto

Wine Spots Carneros Pinot Noir makes an excellent wine and food pairing for this recipe.

Serves 4

3 tbsp olive oil
12 oz white mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic
2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
1/2 cup dry white wine
6 oz Parmesan risotto
Salt and pepper

Clean the mushrooms thoroughly. Do not soak the mushrooms in water. You may need to use a brush or damp cloth to clean the mushrooms.

In a saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and cook until golden (about 6 - 7 minutes). Add the garlic and 1 tablespoon of parsley. Stir well and cook for about a minute. Add the wine and continue cooking over medium heat until the wine has evaporated. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.

Prepare the risotto according to package directions. When the risotto is almost done cooking, slowly stir in the mushrooms.

Sprinkle with remaining parsley and serve hot.
