Tuscan Mushrooms

Cook Time: 20 min
Level: Easy
Yield: 4 to 6 servings


* 1/2 cup diced jarred roasted red bell peppers
* 1/2 cup diced pitted green olives
* 1/2 cup grated pecorino Romano
* 2 scallions, diced
* 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
* 1 pound white button mushrooms, cleaned and stemmed
* 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil leaves


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

In a medium bowl mix together the roasted red bell peppers, olives,
cheese, scallions, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

On a parchment paper-lined baking sheet place the mushrooms, cavity

until the mushrooms are tender, about 20 minutes.

Transfer the mushrooms to a serving platter, sprinkle with chopped
basil, and serve.
