The mushrooms look and taste great!
So delicious, easy, quick ❤️ I loved it and all my family as well, I served it with mash potatoes and tomato-onion salad with red wine vinegar ☺️ delicious!
Quick recipe that looks and tastes like it took much more effort than it did. I paired it with some homemade pizza, but it would make a great appetizer for a more formal meal.
I used some finely chopped onions and peppers and only Parmesan cheese (no cream cheese or mozzarella). I might add some crushed red pepper as well the next time.
