3 Add the mushrooms to the gravy the remaining butter and when melted, add the rice and let it roast 4 minutes, stirring.
Add the wine and let it evaporate. Add a ladle of hot broth, stirring often and bring the rice is cooked by pouring more broth only when the previous one has been totally absorbed.
4 After 10 minutes, add the pumpkin sauce and mushrooms to the cooked rice and parsley, washed, dried and chopped finely, mix and add salt and pepper.
5 Cook for 5-6 minutes, stir in the grated cheese and butter, turn off the heat and stir energetically until is “mantecato”. Let it stand for 2 minutes before serving.

Properly cooked risotto is rich and creamy but still with some resistance or bite: al dente and with separate grains. The traditional texture is fairly fluid, or all’onda (wavy). It should be served on flat dishes and it should be easily spread out but not have excess watery liquid around the perimeter. It must be eaten at once as it continues to cook in its own heat and can become too dry with the grains too soft.
