Soak dried mushrooms in warm water for about 30 min., squeeze dry, and chop finely.
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan, and saute onion and garlic until soft and golden.
Add mushrooms and rice, and cook gently for 5-10 min.
Add wine, and allow to evaporate.
Then add a ladle of boiling stock, and allow rice to absorb the liquid, stirring all the while.
Continue to add stock in this way until rice is tender.

Season, and serve immediately, with plenty of additional Parmesan cheese at hand, as a primo piatto.
