Portobello mushrooms offer so many opportunities to create fabulous meals – like this recipe from food.com. I stuffed these beauties with a ground Italian sausage mixture and topped them with freshly grated mozzarella.  KITCHEN TIP— I keep seasoned croutons on the shelf year round. Put some in a plastic bag, and crush them with a rolling-pin. These will undoubtedly be some of the best bread crumbs you will ever use. They are always fresh and ready to go whenever you need them.  I paired the mushrooms with Cheesy Creamed Spinach  for a wonderful Sunday supper.
