While this serves 6 keep in mind that these are HEALTHY portions. If your feeding teenage boys you'll be lucky to get 2 servings. However, you'll feel better knowing that they are eating good for them food. I actually reccomend the micro method on this one.

I used maybe more of 8 ounces of mushrooms. I cooked them in olive oil until they were brown. I omitted the onion, garlic and cilantro. I'm sure with onion it's delicious but my BF doesn't really like onions (he says he has heartburns). I used orange cheddar cheese. It was so yummy like that. The taste of the mushrooms with the cheese :yummy: Thanks Annacia :) Made for 123 hit wonders.
Very simple, very nice! I used olive oil in place of spray. Tasty! Thank you Annacia!
