Pesto Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms:
16oz. whole white button mushrooms
4oz. cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp. pesto
1 tsp. butter
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup shredded cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 8 X 8 baking dish, set aside. In a medium bowl stir cream cheese, pesto, salt and pepper together until smooth and well blended. Spoon cream cheese mixture into hollowed out mushrooms, filling all the way to the top. Place mushroom in baking dish. Repeat until all cream cheese mixture is used. You will probably have left over mushrooms. Toss them in with stuffed mushrooms or save for later enjoyment. Sprinkle cheese on top of mushrooms and bake for 15-18 minutes.
Be careful, they are delicate!
