Stuffed mushroom caps are simple and delicious. Be sure to get large portobellos that are firm and free of soft spots. A small spoon is the easiest way to scrape out the thick gills on these monster mushrooms. For a crispier bite, garnish your finished mushroom caps with parmesan and broil for about 1 minute.
