Creamy, cheesy, heavenly, Indeed! The porcini mushrooms are the star of this recipe, they added so much earthy flavor. I made as written and added the soaked porcinis in with the sauteed garlic and shallots just before adding the rice. This is a keeper and will be made often and added to my "Best Of 2012 Cookbook" Thanks Eismeer for posting this delicious recipe. Made for Spring 2012 PAC.
