“Found this recipe in Bon Appetit. It's easy and quick, but elegant enough for a special dinner or guests. Best of all, it can be assembled earlier in the day, refrigerated, and cooked just before serving. We served it with a crisp Romaine salad and fresh buttermilk whole wheat bread, but the same method could be employed to stuff baby 'bellas for a terrific hors d'oeuvre.”
6 mushrooms

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Arrange mushroom caps, rounded side down, on a large baking sheet which has been lightly coated with cooking spray.
  3. Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Sauté eggplant, tomatoes and garlic until eggplant is soft, 8 - 15 minutes.
  4. Stir in red wine and simmer until liquid evaporates, another 2 - 5 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat. Stir in Gorgonzola, 1 T. basil, and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Spoon mixture evenly into mushroom caps and top with Parmesan cheese.
  7. Cover mushrooms with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking about 10 minutes more, or until cheese melts, the filling bubbles, and mushrooms are tender when pierced with a sharp knife.
  8. Garnish with remaining basil and serve warm.
