Pat mushrooms dry and saute in a large skillet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  2. Heat remaining oil in large, heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and cook until softened. Add rice and cook, stirring, until rice becomes translucent, about 3-5 minutes.

After 20 minutes, rice should be tender and creamy, but not mushy. Add more stock is needed. Fold in sauteed mushrooms, cheese, and season with salt and pepper.
