Yield: 20 stuffed mushrooms
New quantity:
Ingredients
  • 2 (8 oz) packages Crimini mushrooms, stems removed, wiped clean
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup marinara sauce (I like Rao's - ultra clean ingredient list and no added sugar)
  • ½ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • 20 small basil leaves, or large basil leaves chopped into pieces
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil (for easy cleanup) and fit it with a roasting rack.
  2. Brush the mushrooms with the olive oil. Place them, top side up, on the roasting rack. Bake for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven. Carefully rearrange the mushrooms so that they are top side down. Spoon a teaspoon of marinara sauce into each mushroom. Sprinkle dried basil over the sauce. Sprinkle the cheese on top.
  4. Return the mushrooms to the oven and bake for 5 more minutes, until cheese is melted. Garnish with basil leaves. Serve immediately.
