I am one of the crazy Bernie dieters that loves to watch the food network.  I was watching Everyday Italian the other day and Giada made this awesome mushroom Parmesan.  There really wasn't much to do in order to Bernify it so here is what I made.

1 portobello mushroom (stem removed)
diced tomato (I used canned, but didn't use the juice)
garlic
onion
salt
45 grams grated allegro cheese
1 tsp. Kraft f.f. grated parmesan cheese (American brand)

Mix tomatos and spices, spoon 1/2 of the mixture into a small baking dish, put mushroom on (bottom up) spoon remaining tomato mixture into mushroom cavity.  Bake at 400' (I use convection bake) for about 7-10 minutes.  Top with cheeses and bake until melted and bubbly.  

Yield: 1 Protein, Variable Vegetable*, 1 Miscellaneous:Garnish

The portion size of the veg will depend on the size of your mushroom and how much tomato you use.

This was really yummy, and I am not usually one to give up meat for cheese as a protein.  Enjoy!

Sounds great Angela!  I'll give it a try this coming week.  Thanks for sharing your recipe.

That's funny you posted that. I made this today for lunch! But I added some canned tuna on it. Very filling! I made 2. So I'm going to have the other tonight for dinner.

I did the same thing a while back. Yum right?!  I added some crumbled melba toast to them as well.

Having a hard time visualizing something, or maybe not.

Sounds like you put some of the filling in the bottom, before the mushroom, then the mushroom on top of that, then the rest of the filling.  So, you're going to have a layer of veggies right on the bottom.  I guess you just use a spatula to transfer it from the baking dish to the plate?  Or is your baking dish so small that you just eat it out of the baking dish?  I bought portobello mushrooms last night (for this) but it sounds like I need to grab a smaller baking dish.

We'll see how it goes!

Thanks Angela,
Your mushroom parmesan sounds like an awesome recipe!
I love mushrooms.

Thanks Tammy,
I will also make it with tuna as you mentioned.

I need to get a small baking dish though to use in the oven, or toaster oven

I'll try it later this week.

Right you are Brian.  I use a small baking dish to cook mine in and just eat right out of it.  When Giada made it on her show, she did 4 or 5 of them in a bigger baking dish though.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

I ran out of evening and settled for a Dr. B bar tonight, but I did get to the store and buy what I think will be a perfect baking dish.  Maybe tomorrow night...
