Reviews for Vegetable-Stuffed Portobellos
"Can't wait to try this. I do a similar one where I combine sun dried tomatoes, fresh garlic basil, topped with mozzarella cheese. Even if you don't like mushrooms, like my husband, you don't even know you are eating them. So yummy."
"These are really good. I only had Italian bread crumbs on hand to use and added more parmesan in the filling and on top, sprinkled w/ minced parsley before baking. Will definitely make again and may reduce the bread crumbs a bit and kick up the spices."
"This recipe was yum! Instead of pepper jack cheese, I used Kraft's new Chipotle White Cheddar Cheese. To make the dish more filling for my husband, I also tossed spiral pasta with pesto, olive oil, and a tsp or so of chipotle chili in adobo sauce and served the portobellos alongside. Delish!!!"
