Mushroom “Pizza”

mushroom1At the grocery store the other day I spotted these big beautiful Portobello mushrooms. They looked so delicious, I had to bring them home with me. I made them into some personal “pizzas” for lunch. They were a huge hit, full of fresh veggies and parmesan cheese – and they only took about 20 minutes to make!

4 large portobello mushrooms
2 roma tomatoes, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 garlic clove, finely diced
1/3 cup fresh basil, finely chopped
1/4 cup + parmesan cheese, shredded

mushroom2Preheat the oven to 425F. In skillet place the diced peppers, onions, and garlic and cook together for about 5 minutes. Clean out the insides of the mushrooms as best as you can gently with a spoon. Lay them on a baking sheet and fill them with the pepper and onion mix. Place the diced tomatoes on top, sprinkle the cheese and basil over the tomatoes and place in the oven for about 7 minutes. We sprinkled more cheese on top when they came out of the oven, but we’re cheese lovers here! Serves 4.
