Ingredients :

  • 2 sticks light string cheese
  • 2 large portabella mushrooms, stems chopped and reserved
  • 1/4 cup canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp. chopped garlic
  • Dash Italian seasoning
  • 8 slices turkey pepperoni, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. sliced black olives

Preparation :

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  • Break each string cheese stick into thirds and place in a blender or food processor–blend at high speed until shredded. (Or pull into shreds and roughly chop.)
  • Place mushroom caps on the sheet, rounded sides down. Bake until slightly tender, about 8 minutes.
  • Remove sheet, but leave oven on. Blot away excess moisture from mushroom caps.
  • In a small bowl, mix crushed tomatoes, garlic, and Italian seasoning. Divide mixture between mushroom caps, and sprinkle with cheese. Top with chopped mushroom stems, pepperoni, and olives.
  • Bake until mushrooms are tender, filling is hot, and cheese has melted, 8 to 10 minutes. Enjoy!
