Larry Stuffs MushroomThis is a fairly quick and simple recipe once you get the mushrooms cleaned and back in the fridge, ready to stuff. After putting them in the oven, start the Rosa sauce, and they will finish about the same time. (Suggestion: Serve in a 300 degree F cast iron vessel for maximum effect).
