Delicious! Be sure not to put too much sausage mixture on the mushrooms because it becomes too rich. I just sprayed the portabella caps with pan spray instead of brushing with olive oil. Turned out great!

Mixed reviews in this house. Unlike Hubs, who called this "gushy mush," I kind of liked it and prefer to simply call it "creamy." While I liked this, I do still have criticisms of my own - with no seasoning I could see where this would be just flat tasting "gush." To circumvent that I used Italian sausage and added freshly ground pepper, sauteed garlic, shallots (onion would have been fine too) fresh parsley and chopped, roasted red pepper. These additions lent color, flavor and texture and easily elevated this to 4-stars. In keeping with our individual and opposite assessments, I ate twice as much of these as Hubs, mostly when he wasn't looking.

This was great! I used baby portabellas, half the cream cheese, added some peppers and did it all on the range. We ate this in tortillas (because I had some that needed to be used up), but it's also great by itself.

Loved them! Followed the recipe exactly. Very easy, very good. Might try a spicier sausage next time. But this was great!

I made the Al Fresco portabellas today for lunch. I made some substitutions to make them lower in fat and they were tasty! I used Laughing Cow cream cheese and fresh chives. I also omitted all the oil.

Wow! Amazing recipe and very easy to make! I used fat free cream cheese because I am dieting . . . but it was still so tasty!
