  • In a large saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the mushrooms to the pan and cook for about 3 minutes or until they become soft.
  • Remove the mushrooms and their liquid and set them aside.
  • In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of olive oil and stir in the shallots. Cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the rice to the pan and stir to coat with oil. Cook for approximately 2 minutes, or until the rice takes on a pale golden color.
  • Pour in the wine while constantly stirring until the wine is fully absorbed.
  • Add 1/2 cup of broth to the rice and stir until the broth is absorbed. Repeat this process by adding 1/2 cup of broth at a time, stirring continuously until the rice is cooked al dente, which usually takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Once the rice is cooked, remove the pan from heat and stir in the mushrooms with their liquid, butter, chives, and parmesan cheese.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
