These colorful mushrooms are so filling, they're almost a meal in themselves. They can also be served with a small garden salad or as a hearty side dish. —Sarah Vasques, Milford, New Hampshire

"I absolutely loved this recipe. The only change I made was using 1 teaspoon of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar."

"I didn't want to fire up the grill, so I broiled them for 4 minutes, turned them over, added the filling and broiled for another 3 minutes. It melted the cheese and brought out the sweetness of the tomatoes. It was awesome!"

"Can't wait to try. Just wanted to say olive oil does come as a cooking spray, if you desire to buy it that way. As does canola, for those who consider it safe."

"Cooking spray? Really? We can't think of a healthier way to grill these portobellos? How about a quick brush, spritz or even a drizzle of olive oil?"

"This is really good! The only thing I did was I placed all the other items on the mushrooms when I was cooking them and I did not turn them over. This was great!!!"
