Mushroom Risotto

4 tablespoons butter, divided
1 pound baby portobello mushrooms, diced
1/2 pound white button mushrooms, diced
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 garlic clove, minced
2 cups Arborio rice
¼ cup white wine
5 cups hot reduced-sodium chicken broth
3/4 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon white pepper
½ cup heavy cream, whipped to soft peaks
½ cup freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
Butternut squash, (par cooked)
Sprigs of fresh thyme

Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook 7 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Place remaining butter in a large saucepan or deep braising pan.
Melt over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until transparent. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Add rice and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
Add wine and 1 cup of broth. Add salt and pepper. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, until liquid is absorbed.
Continue adding broth in 1/2-cup increments, adding more when broth is almost completely absorbed. Stir frequently, but gently, so as not to break the grains of rice. (This may take up to 40 minutes.)
When rice is al dente, fold in cream just until small streaks of cream remain in risotto.
Remove from heat and fold in mushrooms and cheese. If risotto is too stiff, add more liquid. It should be creamy and not stiff.
Garnish with sprigs of thyme. Serves 6. Recipe by Chris Koetke, Cooking Class, March 2010.

Tip: Sautéing the mushrooms in a separate large pan with lots of surface area develops better flavor. Be sure to heat the chicken broth in the microwave before adding it to the risotto.
