  • Combine the water and the stock for the risotto and put aside.
  • In a large nonstick saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Cover and sauté the shallots for 2 minutes. Cook, uncovered, for 2 minutes, stirring continuously. Stir in the wine and simmer, stirring continuously, for 30 seconds or until the liquid is almost absorbed. 12 cup at a time, add the salt and the stock combination, stirring continuously until each part of the stock mixture is absorbed before adding the next (about 20 minutes total). Cook, stirring constantly, until the smoked Gouda has melted. Cook, stirring constantly, until the spinach is wilted.
  • In a large nonstick pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat for the mushrooms. Add the mushrooms and cook for another 5 minutes, or until they start to brown. Sauté for 1 minute, or until the wine is absorbed, with the shallots, wine, thyme, rosemary, and garlic. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • To serve, divide the risotto equally among six bowls, cover with the mushroom mixture, then top with the Parmesan cheese. If desired, garnish with rosemary sprigs.
