1 cup boiling water

1/4 - 1/2 ounce dried porcini mushrooms

1 small onion, chopped

1 teaspoon dried sage leaves

1 1/2 cups Arborio rice

Heat broth and reserved porcini liquid to boiling in medium saucepan, reduce heat to low to keep broth hot. Add broth to rice mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring over medium heat until broth is absorbed before adding another 1/2 cup. Continue process until rice is al dente and mixture is creamy, 20 to 25 minutes, stir in cheese and pine nuts. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
