  • Serves: 4 servings
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 medium Portobello mushrooms, brushed clean & stems removed
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 lb. Stemple Creek ground beef
  • 1 large sweet onion, diced
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons herb seasoning blend
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup favorite chunky tomato pasta sauce
  • 4 teaspoons prepared pesto sauce + extra for topping
  • 12 oz. package shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Using the edge of a spoon, scrape out the filaments on the inside of the mushroom cap, leaving the shell intact. Brush the outer mushroom shell with olive oil and place on a foil-covered baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes on the center rack of the oven. Remove mushrooms from the oven and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add diced onion and garlic and sauté until translucent (about 3-4 minutes).

  3. Add ground beef and cook evenly. Sprinkle with herb seasoning blend & pepper to taste.

  4. When the meat is no longer pink, add the pasta sauce and mix to coat. *If the sauce is too juicy, continue to cook until the excess liquid evaporates.

  5. Coat the inner shell of each cooked mushroom with a teaspoon of prepared pesto sauce. Top with 1/3 to 1/2 cup of the beef-tomato mixture. Sprinkle generously with shredded mozzarella cheese.

  6. Put stuffed mushrooms back in the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes until the cheese is melted and ingredients are heated through. Finish with a dollop of pesto if desired.
