Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms


These little bite sized appetizers are delicious!  They were created while I was cleaning out my fridge.  I had a little leftover pesto and a bag of mushrooms that needed to be used up and voila! These pesto stuffed mushrooms were born.  I likely shouldn't admit to this but shortly after taking the photo I ate them all.  They were really that good!!

They've become one of my staples for entertaining as they're so simple, aesthetically appealing and not too filling.  

Nutritional value is dependent on the size of mushroom.  If you're tracking your numbers you can weigh the mushroom before cooking.
