“Golden caramelized onions and creamy roasted garlic are an ideal match for the flavors in this recipe. It’s like a quick transport to a ristorante in Rome. For a bit of heat, add red pepper flakes while sauteeing the onions.”—Jeanne Holt, Saint Paul, Minnesota

"First time eating and cooking portobellos. this was divine. Added a little worchesterstire to the onions, and omitted the cheese. Yum"

"These are a winner at picnics and BBQ's! I took them as a side dish, and people put the mushroom on their burger roll instead of the burger! I cheat on the garlic step though...I just saute garlic in with the onions."

"It was fabulous! I did not have pancetta or bacon on hand and it was still good. My husband loved it as well."

"Never used portobello mushrooms before, this was a meal in itself. Took leftovers to work, my lunch mates asked for the recipe."
