DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a small bowl, combine marinara sauce and basil, blending well; set aside.
  • With a sharp knife, remove stems from mushrooms; coarsely chop stems and set aside.
  • Arrange mushrooms, rounded-side-down in a 12 x 8 x 2-inch baking dish and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine chicken, marinara/basil sauce, garlic, green onion, peppers, Italian parsley, and Italian herbs, if desired, mixing well. May add salt and pepper to taste, if desired.
  • Press mixture onto mushrooms, dividing evenly and fitting each mushroom.
  • Bake, loosely covered with aluminum foil, in a preheated moderate oven (350 degrees F.) for 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Uncover and sprinkle each mushroom with shredded mozzarella cheese or cheese of choice and continue baking, uncovered, for 6 to 7 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  • Sprinkle each lightly with Parmesan or Romano cheese, if desired, and continue baking for 6 to 8 minutes or until cheese becomes lightly browned.
