    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly pan spray or oil-mist a pan large enough to hold all the mushrooms without them touching. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Remove the stems from the portobello. If you prefer to do so, you may also use a spoon to gently remove the gills of the mushrooms. Gently wipe the mushrooms clean with a mushroom brush or a paper towel.
    3. 3
      In a bowl, mix 1 Tbsp olive oil together with the pesto.
    4. 4
      Put the mushrooms, cap side down, in the prepared pan. Cut or tear (tearing preferred) the cheese into pieces and divide between the mushrooms.
    5. 5
      Evenly drizzle the pesto mixture over the mushrooms and cheese, then distribute the pine nuts over all.
    6. 6
      Bake in 400 degree F oven for 8 to 10 minutes until the cheese is bubbling and melted.
    7. 7
      While mushrooms are baking, lightly toast the focaccia or ciabatta bread.
    8. 8
      Transfer a baked mushroom to each slice of bread, and enjoy!
    9. 9
      Note: also good on these are thin slices of Japanese eggplant. (See Hopvine's Marinated Roasted Eggplant (Aubergine).).
