Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. Place mushrooms stem side down on an ungreased 15 x 10-inch baking pan. Bake for 8 minutes. Transfer mushrooms stem side down to paper towels to cool. Wipe out the pan. 
  3. Meanwhile, drain or pat (with paper towel) pesto to remove any excess oil. Combine asiago and pesto in a medium bowl.
  4. Return mushrooms stem side up to the pan; fill with asiago mixture. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and cheese is melted.

Cheesemonger Tip

Asiago is an aged, hard cheese with a nutty flavor and creamy finish. For a tasty treat, pair it with warm French bread, dried pineapple or fresh grapes and a nutty brown ale.
Remember to adjust your ingredients according to the number of family or guests, and send us your pictures at @keystonefarmcheese to be featured on our Instagram. We'd really love that!
