    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    The amount listed will serve about 3-4 people although my DH and DS could eat this dish by themselves lol! you can double this recipe if desired, white button mushrooms can be replace for the portabellos. This dish will have you clammering for more, and it tastes even better the following day, but I doubt if there will be any leftovers lol! Use as much portabello mushrooms or button mushooms and cheeses as desired for this recipe, I don't bother measuring. This can be served as a side dish or a main dish, it's a pretty filling dish especially if you use portabello mushrooms!

      This is a wonderful no meat meal! I used 12 large chopped mushrooms(it had more mushroom than eggplant), 4 cloves of garlic, 3 teaspoons italian seasoning and 1 teaspoon (which was still a bit much for me) of red pepper flakes. I made sure to drain my mushrooms and onions well but in the end it still ended up with alot of liquid but it was easy to drain. All in all we really loved this! I would say it feeds 6-8 though so the calories don't scare you away. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
