STUFFED MUSHROOMS

Stuffed mushrooms have become my new favorite, easy to make, go to appetizers. You can stuff mushrooms with just about anything and they will taste good. Here is a recipe I concocted at a recent lunch party I had. Feel free to experiment with any vegetables you have lying around in your kitchen.
