This silky-textured gravy is rich in flavor and amazingly low in calories. It can be made up to four days ahead, then warmed just before serving.
Place porcini mushrooms in bowl, and cover with 2 cups boiling water. Let stand 15 minutes. Remove porcini and squeeze liquid back into bowl; coarsely chop porcini. Reserve liquid.
Coat skillet with olive oil cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add cremini mushrooms, shallots, garlic, and porcini, and sauté 2 minutes. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook 15 minutes, stirring once or twice.
Sprinkle in flour and sauté 2 minutes. Stir in broth, wine, tomato paste, rosemary, reserved porcini liquid, and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer, partially covered, 30 minutes.
Strain through fine-mesh sieve into saucepan, and discard mushrooms. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, 8 minutes, or until reduced to 4 cups. Season with salt and pepper.
