In a microwave-safe bowl, heat white wine on HIGH for 4 minutes. Place dried mushrooms in wine and let sit for 10 minutes to rehydrate. Transfer mushrooms with 2/3 of a cup of the liquid to a food processor. Puree to a coarse consistency.
In a medium pot combine remaining ingredients and pureed mushrooms. Mix thoroughly and cook over medium-low heat, for about 5 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Transfer to bowl and serve hot with crusty bread or crostini.
*Pre-packaged dried wild mushrooms are found in the produce department of your local grocery store.
