These mushrooms are rich and creamy and bright at the same time because of the fresh herbs and tomato. I especially like them served with grilled asparagus. —Tre Balchowsky, Sausalito, California

  1. In a small bowl, mix ricotta cheese, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, parsley and pepper. Remove and discard stems from mushrooms; with a spoon, scrape and remove gills. Fill caps with ricotta mixture. Top with tomato slices.
  2. Grill, covered, over medium heat 8-10 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Remove from grill with a metal spatula.
  3. Meanwhile, place basil, almonds and garlic in a small food processor; pulse until chopped. Add remaining Parmesan cheese; pulse just until blended. While processing, gradually add oil and enough water to reach desired consistency. Spoon over stuffed mushrooms before serving. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

"Very good but I think the cheese mixture is only enough for 4, will make again though."

"Very good! Used cottage cheese instead of ricotta because I always have that on hand and still very good! Used my own home-made pesto that I keep frozen to speed prep up."

"I made these on the stove and they were so good, I had one for breakfast the next morning ;)"

"These were beautiful, and the pesto gave them a good flavor. Next time...I might add a little seasoning to the cheese, or at least salt the mushrooms. I just felt like it needed a little bit more of a salty flavor for my liking."
