My immediate thought when I first saw the recipe on Gimme Some Oven for pesto stuffed mushrooms, “Wow, a simple and healthy recipe.” There’s pesto, there’s mushrooms… what’s not to love?
I’m a reformed tomato-hater. Like, ‘used to pick tomatoes out of salsa’ tomato-hater (nothing is left but tomato juice and, I don’t know, corn). I’ve changed my ways, though, but even now when I see recipes that call for a lot of tomatoes, especially cooked tomatoes, I am still slightly apprehensive. But after going to the farmers market just a few days ago, I became excited to use the huge heirlooms I bought for this recipe.
