METHON OF PREPARATION:
Put the black pepper, half of the olive oil and the amount of salt you need into the balsamic vinegar then throw in the portabella mushrooms in and mix. This serves as seasoning and it makes the mushrooms even tastier. After this, put them on a baking sheet (you could line the sheet with foil paper if you are worried about washing afterwards) then into the pre heated oven for about 10 minutes. Take out and allow to cool down.
While the mushrooms are cooling, mix the parmesan, bread crumbs, remaining olive oil, parsley and basil leaves.
Place a slice of the mozzarella in the cup of the mushroom then put the mixture over the entire mushroom evenly. Repeat for all 8 mushrooms then put them back in the oven for another 5 minutes.
During this time, the mozzarella should start melting and the bread mix should look golden brown. Once it appears that way, your dish is ready.
Serve hot or warm, bearing in mind that in this case, the cheese should not be allowed to cool down and solidify.
