Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms

I can never resist any variety of mushrooms.  They are nutritious, versatile, and make for a hearty meal.  I absolutely love them grilled on the barbeque, but for this recipe, they roasted beautifully in the oven.  My preschooler isn’t a huge fan of this large variety of mushroom, but the nice thing is the vegetable stuffing worked perfectly tossed with some pasta.  So, all were happy tonight…
