Pesto Parmesan Stuffed Mushrooms


  • 12 cremini (brown) mushrooms
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts, toasted
  • 12 teaspoons pesto
  • 1 small garlic, minced
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Italian parsley, finely chopped

  1. Clean mushrooms with a damp cloth (don’t wash!). Remove stem and season with salt and black pepper. Lightly drizzle extra virgin olive oil over the top of the mushrooms. Arrange mushrooms on a prepared sheet pan. Pour in 1 teaspoon of pesto into each mushroom. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  3. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in a large deep sided frying pan on medium to high heat. Add onions and saute until cooked.

Bake for about 6 minutes or until mushrooms are cooked.
