- 16 large cremini or button mushrooms
- 1/2 pound spicy Italian sausage
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Remove the stems from the mushrooms and finely chop them. Place the mushroom caps on a baking sheet.
- In a skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage and chopped mushroom stems until the sausage is browned. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional minute.
- In a bowl, combine the cooked sausage and mushroom mixture with Parmesan cheese, cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, and chopped parsley. Season with salt and pepper.
- Using a spoon, stuff each mushroom cap with the sausage and cheese mixture, mounding slightly.
- Drizzle the stuffed mushrooms with olive oil and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender and the filling is golden and bubbly.
- Serve hot and enjoy!
If you prefer a vegetarian option, you can easily swap the sausage for sautéed spinach or diced bell peppers for an equally delicious result.
