    I love to make these! Especially for parties and potlucks, but then I usually make this recipe times at least 3, they disappear FAST!

      I served these with pesto tortellini and grilled salmon, as a side dish, rather than appetizer. They have a nice flavour and the ricotta makes them very creamy. I probably wouldn't hollow them out next time and just pile the stuffing on top, as they went very flat in the oven, which I assume was because of taking the whole stem and gills out. Thanks for sharing! :)

      What a great side dish, appetizer, anytime dish. I didn't have ricotta and used whipped cottage cheese and greek yogurt instead.

      Love the 'shrooms. I am a pesto lover and am always looking for new pesto recipes. I used portabello mushrooms. (as they are my favorite) I wasn't sure about the ricotta with everything else but it was perfect. I too added a little bit of sea salt. Will be making again for Christmas Eve.
