Simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring from time to time. Heat the stock in a saucepan, add the mushrooms and simmer for 10 minutes over medium heat. Combine mushroom mixture and wine mix mixture; simmer for 20 minutes. The scent of this cooking is unbelievably fragrant! The finished stew may be served alone, or over rice, polenta or pasta, and is nice garnished with a little parsley or young arugula. Serves 3 or 4.
