    Default Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

    gratineed stuffed portobello mushrooms

    *Sun-dried tomato pesto makes a great substitute for the basil pesto in the stuffing.

    2 garlic cloves
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1 medium zucchini
    1 medium red pepper
    ⅓ cup store-bought pesto sauce
    cup Italian-style seasoned breadcrumbs
    4 extra-large stemmed portobello mushroom caps
    1 package (8 ounces) pre-shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

    1. Preheat the broiler. Place a sheet of aluminum foil on the broiler pan rack.
    2. Finely chop the garlic. In a small bowl, stir together the olive oil and garlic and season with salt and pepper.
    3. Chop the zucchini and red pepper and place in a medium bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of the garlic oil. Spread the oiled vegetables on the prepared pan and broil for 3 minutes. Lift the foil from the rack and return the vegetables to the medium bowl. Add the pesto and crumbs and stir to combine well.
    4. Place the mushroom caps, open side down, on the broiler pan rack and brush with garlic oil. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes. Turn, brush the mushrooms with the remaining garlic oil, and broil for 3 minutes.
    5. Divide the stuffing evenly among the mushrooms, spooning it in and gently patting it down. Sprinkle with the mozzarella. Broil until the cheese has just melted and starts to brown.

    I found this recipe absolutely delish. I didn't use red peppers (husband hates them) and instead of zucchini I used summer squash (all that was available when I went to the store). I used garden herb pesto.

    I made these last night and they were great. I used a bit too much pesto, though, but first time cooking anything is always trial and error.

    I served them with brown rice, although I probably didn't need it.

    I have a very simple and fairly yummy recipe for stuffed mushrooms?

    1 package Jimmy Dean regular pan sausage
    1 - 8oz block Philiadelphia cream chees
    1 pkg mushrooms

    wash, drain and remove caps from mushrooms. brown sausage, add cream cheese. spoon sausage and cream cheese mixture into caps. Bake at 300 until mushrooms and stuffing are nice and brown - plus you'll know it's ready because your house will smell heavenly. This is great as an appetizer!
    Warning: do not try to just eat the stuffing mixture - rich and delish but will give you a tummy ache!

    Kill everything... that IS the solution!
