Stuffed Mushrooms

There are a lot of fancy stuffed mushrooms out there, but these straightforward ones using just breadcrumbs, cheese and few herbs are delicious. This recipe has been altered from a Giada recipe. And if you're making these for a party you can prepare a day ahead and just bake off before your guests arrive.

1/2 cup Italian-style dried bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano
2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
28 large (2 1/2-inch-diameter) white mushrooms, stemmed

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Chop up the stems of the mushrooms in a food processor. Add the garlic and parsley and pulse until chopped and combined. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the bread crumbs, Pecorino Romano, salt and pepper, to taste, and 2 tablespoons olive oil in a medium bowl to blend.

Drizzle a heavy large baking sheet with about 1 tablespoon olive oil, to coat. Spoon the filling into the mushroom cavities and arrange on the baking sheet, cavity side up. Drizzle remaining oil over the filling in each mushroom. Bake until the mushrooms are tender and the filling is heated through and golden on top, about 25 minutes. Serve.
